Ithaca Children's Garden (ICG) is both a place and a program, located on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail, minutes from downtown Ithaca. ICG has spent over a decade now building a three-acre public children's garden as well as developing, implementing, and evaluating a wide range of educational programs for children, teens, families, schools, and the community. Year-round, we offer camps, events, drop-in programs, school programs and workshops. At ICG, research and play-based environmental education is central to all programming. Whether it's summer camp activities, free play, or a celebration, the Garden strives to emphasize a connection to nature and the learning opportunities it provides to us all.
