Lathrup Village Children's Garden  

Welcome to the Lathrup Village Children’s Garden! Our 4,000 square foot “Adopt a Plot” garden is located behind the Lathrup Village Municipal Building.  This garden, “Where Children Blossom and Grow,” has become a showplace in our community, filled with flowers and plants, as well as arbors, benches, and garden art. Our 2013 season was marked by the addition of five metal windmill flower sculptures.  This project was funded through a generous donation from the Lathrup Village Community Foundation. These sculptures not only gained recognition from our local residents, but they were also featured in the 2014 Annual issue of Lifestyle Magazine for the Greater Southfield Area. The Lathrup Village Childrens Garden has been a place where children and adults of all ages can connect with the wonders of nature.  Since its inception in 2001, our organization has planned and implemented more than 150 programs and activities. We have exciting future plans for the garden which include a new bridge, a living wall ecosystem, a checkerboard garden, and new garden landscapes.  We would like to invite you and your family to become a part of our garden family.
