The Children's Garden at Long Hill

I cannot even begin to tell you how much we love The Children's Garden at Long Hill in Beverly, MA.  If you are in the area, you absolutely must visit this little hidden treasure.  We lived nearby for a long time before we found this magical place and I was so disappointed that we hadn't been visiting all along!

Long Hill is one of several locations owned by the Trustees of Reservations.  You can visit the official website here.  There is no cost to visit this location, even without a membership.  The children's garden is a beautiful little place with flowers, plants, bugs, butterflies, birds, hiding places, trails, tools for watering, digging, raking, collecting water from the well... you name it.  It is a small, peaceful, magical place.  My description cannot even begin to describe it so you will have to visit to experience it in person.  There are benches for grown ups to watch their little ones explore.  The garden is located right next to a chicken coop and there are chickens and guineas galore.

We hope to visit again soon before the weather gets too cool!

If you don't live local to this garden I highly recommended looking to see if there are any similar places in your area.  It really is such a wonderful experience for children... and their families!
