Don't worry if you run out of time to get all your stickers in one visit - you can bring your passport back to complete the challenges at any time during the summer holidays. And if you bring back your stickered passport and show it at the admissions desk, kids get free entry on a return visit! (Until 31st August 2015 when accompanied by a full paying adult.

Why connecting with nature is child’s play

Why connecting with nature is child’s play

National Botanic Garden of Wales, Llanarthne, Carmarthenshire SA32 8HN.
Playday, the national day to celebrate play in the UK, is held on the first Wednesday in August - that’s the 5th this year – and the National Botanic Garden of Wales is playing its part. Playday was started as a celebration of children's right to play as well highlighting the importance of outdoor play in children's lives. This is in line with the National Botanic Garden of Wales’ learning strategy that focuses on sustainability and connecting people with the natural environment. A recent study by the group Eco Attractions, of which the Gardens is a member, found that there is a huge list of typical childhood pastimes that children today have never experienced, such as climbing trees, getting muddy, making a daisy chain and growing veg from seed. Admission to the Garden is £9.75 (including Gift Aid) for adults and £4.95 for children over five. Entry is FREE for Garden members and parking is free for all.
