Adventure Week in the Gardens’ Final List of Activities

 

Hudson Between Reno and Sheridan to be closed for Touch-A-Truck Tuesday

The Myriad Botanical Gardens presents its first  “Adventure Week in the Gardens,” Monday, March 13 through Thursday, March 16, 10am – 2pm. When we say ‘every day is a new adventure’ we truly mean it. Hands-on activities and workshops will take place under the pavilion and pavilion lawn on the southwest corner at Reno and Hudson. More activities will happen inside the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory Discovery Room where children ages 4-12 are invited to find their inner builder, scientist, or detective. A scavenger hunt game will be available inside the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory for the new exhibition Kaleidoscope of Colors. End the afternoon with a trip to our outdoor Children’s Garden. Food trucks will be onsite during the lunch hour.

For Touch-A-Truck Tuesday Hudson Avenue, between Sheridan and Reno, will be closed from 9am-3pm. Nine trucks will align the street for children to interact with. Trucks include: a shredding truck from Absolute Data Shredding, a box truck from Little Guys Movers, a recycle truck from Waste Connections of Oklahoma, a cement truck from Dolese Bros. Co., a Bear Cat from OKC Police Dept. Tactical Unit, a truck and inflatable Funfest from Great Plains Coca Cola, Komatsu truck from Kirby-Smith Machinery, a fire truck from OKC Fire Dept. Station 1, the Feed The Children truck, an EMSA Ambulance, an OG&E bucket service truck and from Premier Truck Group of OKC a 2014 Freightliner Cascadia. Kids of all ages can experience life-size vehicles and interact with the drivers. Families will have the opportunity for hands-on exploration.

Cost per day of Adventure Week is children $13 and adult FREE (per each day) for Gardens’ members. For nonmember: Children $18; Nonmember Adult $8 (per each day). Parents must accompany their child during all activities. Pre-register online at myriadgardens.org. Walk-ups welcome.
