The Children’s Garden was created to engage kids with lively and interesting plant games and play facilities which designed to encourage them to develop greater plant awareness. We hope that by playing in a setting rich with plants, ecological and natural interest, children may begin to understand the importance of plants to humans and the planet’s ecosystems.Features of the Children’s Garden include the Topiary Garden, the Little Zoo, a Tree House and Pirate Ship on the Willow Tree Island.
Tropical Plants Exploration Museum
The Tropical Plants Exploration Museum, opened in 2015, is located in the pavilion between the three conservatories. The museum is a multimedia center designed to interpret the rich diversity and value of the living plants in the adjacent glass houses. Designed for all ages, this compact space presents a wealth of botanical information.
Chenshan 4D Popular Science Theater can house over 150 people. Wings of Life, a 4D film currently played in this theater presents the natural ecological phenomenon of co-evolution between insects and other animals & plants, both of which jointly maintain the beauty of natural world. From a new angle and a shocking perspective, this film gives people a fresh feeling and arouses people’s concern about ecological environment protection.
Chenshan Botanical Garden makes a minor renovation to the original cedar forest, which is thereby built into a unique tree house cluster. Each tree house differs from one another in appearance and size, and is connected with others through a wooden trestle and drawbridge, thus full of natural spirit. Whenever the sunlight penetrates through tips of branches leaving mottled lights and shadows, it makes you have fantastic fantasies about being there.
In the design, Chenshan Botanical Garden makes an ingenious use of the Willow Island as the body of a ship. Matched with well-designed “ship's bow” and “stern”, it looks like a braving pirate ship sailing in the Xihu Lake of Chenshan Botanical Garden, when viewed at a distance.
