First 5 Garden of Wonder and Discovery at Bord Bia Bloom 2023

31 May 2023

The First 5 Garden of Wonder and Discovery – designed by children for children – will be on show at this year’s Bord Bia Bloom festival in the Phoenix Park, Dublin this June Bank Holiday weekend.

This unique large concept garden will promote the importance of outdoor play for young children.  This is part of the First 5 strategy, led by the Department of Children Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth. Children and their families are invited to explore the garden and learn about the best way to use their outdoor spaces to support and encourage children’s learning and development, health and well-being.

Alongside the First 5 Garden of Wonder and Discovery, parents and their children are also invited to the Department’s sand pit play area in the ‘Budding Bloomers’ section.
