General info

Imagination opens the door to undiscovered worlds. It allows children and adults to escape to that one place where peace is found in an ever changing world. The Children's Garden, housed at the Knox County Career Center, is one of those safe places in the world where imaginations do run wild and tranquility is cultivated right along with the beautiful landscaping. Visitors to the Garden will notice that while the seasons and colors change, the fun and exciting atmosphere remains the same. A major attraction to the Garden is the multicolored open-air steel amphitheater. This whimsical setting is a perfect place for children to watch musical or theatrical performances or even to put on a production of their own. Highlights to the half-acre garden include a hand-painted mural depicting the life of Johnny Appleseed, a gazebo that provides a birds-eye view of the butterfly shaped garden, a screened butterfly house, two forts overlooking a mock Serpent Mound, and a wrought-iron, mushroom-shaped tower with spiral staircas
