Storybook Trail- Kingwood’s Storybook Trail provides children and families an engaging literacy experience in the gardens. Children will enjoy walking the Woodland Trail in search of the next page of the story displayed on large signboards along the new ADA path. What a wonderful way to enjoy a great book and experience nature while learning! New books are featured seasonally and are available for purchase in the Garden & Gift Shop.
B&O Bike Trail Access- Kingwood Center Gardens now offers access to and from the trail between 10 am and 6:30 pm April through October. Guests can now hop off the trail and spend some time exploring the gardens or grab a nutritious lunch in the Gateway Café before or after they hop on the trail for a ride. B&O Trail users can park their cars at Kingwood for free to start their time on the trail here. If cyclists come to Kingwood off the trail, they will be able to secure their bikes to a bike rack near the Garden Gateway visitor center and are free to shop & dine without paying for garden admission.
