6 cool new things to look forward to

The new Carol & Bruce  Bell Children’s Garden will give families more than 2 acres to explore when it opens in May at Green Bay Botanical Garden. The gateway sculpture, titled Chromatic Passage, is already turning heads.

Before you know it, the 2023 entertainment calendar will begin to fill up with annual festivals, outdoor concert series and farmers markets, but first … cold, snow and winter.

While we wait for brighter, busier days ahead, here are six things set to happen in the Green Bay area this year that are new to the lineup.

Opening of Carol & Bruce Bell Children’s Garden

Kids will have acres to explore, climb, crawl and slide when Green Bay Botanical Garden’s new children’s garden opens in May.

Five times bigger than the Gertrude B. Nielsen Children’s Garden that opened 26 years ago, the 2½-acre Carol & Bruce Bell Children’s Garden will be the largest in the state and one of the biggest in the Upper Midwest. Families will be able to learn about plants, nature, water and wildlife with lily pad splash and mushroom jumper woodland play areas, treehouse structures with views from 16 feet up, a hillside tunnel and cave, a raindrop garden and critter sculptures that include birds, badgers and turtles. More than 500 trees and 20,000 perennials also will be planted.
