Galactic Gardens

Presented by Adventure Science Center at Adventure Science Center, Nashville TN

Ongoing
Galactic Gardens

Learning can’t be confined to the classroom…

In this outdoor learning area, you can find:

  • the Cornerstone Financial Credit Union Amphitheater… a perfect space to explore the environment and sustainability while surrounded by the beauty of nature.
  • the Rain Garden… a specially-designed garden planted with the help of Cumberland River Compact that contributes to preserving clean rainwater, creating habitat, and preventing local flooding and water pollution.
  • the Galactic Gardens Mural… a merging of nature into the Milky Way galaxy designed by local muralists Eastside Murals that serves as a STEAM learning tool to explore native species flowers.
  • the Phases of the Moon Engraving… a special engraved diagram that can help you better understand how the Earth-Moon-Sun system works and explore how the Moon appears differently over time.

While Galactic Gardens currently serves as a space primarily for students on field trips, it makes for a wonderful spot to eat lunch on a beautiful day. The Adventure Science Center’s even used it for musical performances and science demonstrations for Science Saturday events! Stay tuned as this space continues to evolve.
