Keck Children’s Amphitheater 

The W.M. Keck Foundation Children’s Amphitheatre is a hidden gem located on the rooftop of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and adjacent to The Blue Ribbon Garden.  The 350-seat outdoor amphitheatre is perfect for family-oriented performances and participatory arts events such as drum circles and sing-alongs.

Blue Ribbon Garden

Blue Ribbon Garden

The Blue Ribbon Garden is the Walt Disney Concert Hall’s rooftop garden.  Nearly an acre in size, the garden is enclosed by the dramatic, sweeping exterior of the Walt Disney Concert Hall and filled with lush landscaping that blooms throughout the year.  The garden features a Frank Gehry designed fountain that pays tribute to the late Lillian Disney and her love for Delft porcelain and roses.  The fountain is a large rose covered in thousands of broken pieces from Royal Delft porcelain vases and tiles creating a one-of-a-kind mosaic.

The Blue Ribbon Garden serves as a back-drop to pre- and post-theater receptions, private events and children’s programming.
