Small Groups

Groups such as a preschools, single classes, summer camps or church groups of less than 50 people are welcome to come to the Kentucky Children’s Garden during normal operating hours. Small groups are SELF-GUIDED and must preregister. Admission cost is $3 per person. This charge is applicable to both students and adults. We do not offer family discounts for small groups. Staffed tours cost an additional $1 per student. For more information, or to register, please see our Small Group Request Form.

Field Trips

Guided Field Trips are offered on Wednesdays from 10am-12pm during the spring and fall when the Kentucky Children's Garden is not open to the public. Field Trips are designed for K-2 students in groups of 50 to 115 students. Lessons are aligned with NGSS standards and take place as rotating stations. For more information on the lessons we offer by grade, see our Field Trip Education Stations List. Cost is $3 per person. This charge is applicable to both students and adults. We will begin accepting Field Trip requests for spring on January 1st, 2018. To register, please see our Field Trip Request Form.

Our spring field trips are full. However, we are still accepting small groups requests (above). If you can bring a group of 50 or less students, please consider that option. Otherwise, please consider booking a guided field trip with us in the fall.
