We visited the Children's Garden during the first week of July 2013 in Sarasota. I read the tripadvisor reviews and thought I understood what to expect. Bottomline, its simply too much money for what it is. I believe we paid over $25 for an over-run garden filled some hap-hazard things thrown in the mix with some imaginative titles. My five year old and two year old made the best of it for an hour or so, but there isnt much to do and perhaps because there were no other kids (none! not a single paying guest in sight!), they tired of it easily. Actually, the two old could have stayed longer but the rest of us were hot, bored and being bitten alive by mosquitoes (though they did kindly leave out bug spray for guests). It seems like a kind place with good intentions, but there really isnt much to it and it could be kept up much better. I would recommend the Jungle Gardens or the Mote Aquarium or even a public playground instead. Anything but... save your money.
