A new venture is taking root at the Eurobodalla Regional Botanic Garden, with the area's first Discovery Garden set to sprout in 2022.

Garden manager Michael Anlezark said the Everyone Can Play Discovery Garden would open up a whole new world of interaction for the young and the young at heart.

"The new Discovery Garden will replace our old sensory garden that was destroyed in the Black Summer bushfires," Mr Anlezark said.

"We're growing back bigger and better. We want to design a garden that engages all the senses in fun and interesting ways, regardless of age and ability."

Mr Anlezark invited the community to visit the garden on Saturday, December 11 between 10am and 2pm, and to "bring your big ideas to help us create something amazing".

He said anyone unable to attend the community consultation event could participate by way of an online survey after the community event.

The Everyone Can Play Discovery Garden is a collaboration between Council and the NSW Government. For more information visit www.everyonecanplay.nsw.gov.au
