The Garden is a dome in Super Mario Galaxy. It is the sixth and final dome that is accessed in the game. It is unlocked once Mario or Luigi recovers the Grand Star from Bowser Jr.'s Lava Reactor.

Render of the inside of the Garden

From the outside, it looks like a pink pearl with a golden decoration similar to a tiara on top. Inside, the Garden is expansive, even having a sky. However, the player cannot venture outside the small cluster of rocks that make up the boundary of the "room". As with all domes, the Garden has a Pull Star in the center that is used to access its galaxies.

Unlike the other domes, the Garden lacks a boss galaxy, as the final Grand Star is located within Bowser's Galaxy Reactor. Mario does not need to enter the Garden in order to reach Bowser's Galaxy Reactor, as he can just collect the sixty Power Stars (including the six Grand Stars) required to access it from previous galaxies. There is a 1-Up Mushroom atop the observatory's spire above the Garden. It can only be retrieved via the use of a Red Star.

  • The background music inside the Garden plays only the first part of the main dome soundtrack, and then uses bird noises for the remaining time.
