Fairy Woods

Be sure to stop in at the Fairy Woods next to Loop de Loop in the Sculpture Garden. This summer, families of tiny fairies have moved in to the Arboretum. They need your help to build them a place to sleep!

Visitors can pick up natural materials at the Gnome Depot to create their own enchanted fairy houses. Fairies like shelter from the elements and somewhere soft to sit— everything else is up to you! View our Map
