Spring has sprung, which means good things are hoppenin’ at Gardner Village! From adorable spring photo ops and new baby animals to an egg-ceptional egg tree, bursting with color and the sweetest Easter treats, The Village is alive with things to see, do, and taste! You can even take the scenic route aboard the Cottontail Express Train Ride to experience it all. Take a look at just some of the fun you can expect!
THE EASTER TREE
Selfie backdrops don’t get better than this brilliant display. The Easter Tree, located just across from Pine Needles and adjacent to The Cottage, has hatched! You don't want to miss its vibrant branches and the cutest carrot garden you ever did see!
BABY ANIMALS AT THE FARM
Get ready too “oooh” and “aaah.” Spring means babies, and The Farm is welcoming new faces to its flock all the time. It’s so wonderful to see their rescue animals thriving. Knowing these darling mamas and papas are getting a second lease on life makes this heartwarming stop all the more special. Stop by with your own littles and help us welcome the sweet babes to The Farm family!
