Camden Children’s Garden

This imaginative garden, located on the Delaware River waterfront, provides a lively place for families to gather. Whimsical interpretive signs designed specifically for kids and set in themed demonstrated gardens, convey the fun and magic of plants and gardening. The painted steel sign frames, inspired by seed packets, are playful yet sturdy and allow for insert panels, produced as weather-proof computer prints, to change periodically.

CG also created 12 unique icons to identify the specialty gardens, such as Alice in Wonderland, Butterfly, Dinosaur and the Three Little Pigs.

Notable: Plant identification signs were designed to resemble seed packets throughout the garden.
