In a reimagination of his storied 1975 Artpark installation, three new works will enliven the water features of the Native Plant Garden and the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory Courtyard’s Tropical Pool, reflecting the interplay and movement of color and light.

Explore more than 30 pumpkin-headed scarecrows set among rare and unusual pumpkins and gourds in the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden. Put on a festive fall puppet show and have a spooky tea party in the Victorian playhouse. Guided activities on afternoons and weekends include potting up a spooky spider plant or investigating creepy crawlers in the pond and soil. On weekends, meet the creepy critters of Halloween.

Eat & Treats: The family-friendly menu at the counter-service Pine Tree Café offers fresh panini, pizza, salads and snacks. Shop for artisanal caramels, infused olive oils and other tasty treats at the charming gift shop.

Other Tips: Take a leisurely narrated tram ride around the gardens to rest from all that walking.
