Exploring Bexley’s Fairy Garden

by Youth Librarian Kelly

As the weather warms up, there’s nothing better than spending some time outside, and one place I recommend is Bexley’s own Fairy Garden at Schneider Park.

At the Fairy Garden, you’ll find many magical and enchanting finds including the Fairy House, Shelley’s Swimming Pool, and Mr. Owl’s House. And located near the Little Free Library are tree trunk reading chairs inspired by the classic children’s series “Little Bear” by Else Homeland Minarik.

On Sunday, April 24th, we’ll be hosting a whimsical Fairy Tea at Three in Bexley’s South Community Gardens at Schneider Park. Come celebrate the latest Fairy Garden installation, a miniature likeness of our very own Bexley Public Library! In partnership with the Bexley Arbor Day Committee, there will be refreshments, a take-home craft and a special children’s concert by ProMusica Chamber Orchestra. Join us in your finest fairy or fairy-tale inspired attire! You won’t want to miss out!
