Time to Explore: The Wheeler Homestead and Children's Garden

Every season brings new adventures into our lives. The Wheeler Homestead and Children’s Garden can be a catalyst for fun no matter what the ground looks like. Whether its mud, snow, leaf covered, or fresh green grass, this hidden gem contains something for all!

Perhaps you are hoping to spot one of the best views Vermont has to offer? Well peak your eyes to the glorious mountain as you stand atop the knoll with miles to photograph.

Maybe the little ones need a trip into the magical world make believe! There is a spot for you at the tea party station, furious dinosaurs who roar loudly with ease, Wild West cowboys ready to sing around the campfire, and even sneaky little gnomes hiding in the brush. Be sure to explore the covered tunnels and don’t leave without popping into the most perfect tree house!

A quiet walk amongst the flowers can help calm any soul. Our gratitude to all who help preserve the gardens for us take a breath in. Keep your eyes open and you may even spot a sign or two with some helpful information about your new favorite flower.

When the snow covers all we can see, no place is better to snowshoe around South Burlington. Easily accessible, convenient parking, and flat terrain make a chilly trip turn into a memorable one for the entire family.

As we all look to recreate safely outdoors, The Wheeler Homestead and Children’s Garden areas are the perfect dose of medicine for these trying times. Be sure to maintain social distance, always wash your hands after play, and leave what was there. And thank you for enjoying the park.
