"CHAO GARDEN is a paradise for CHAOs. There is a nice and clean pond so CHAO loves to stay here. But I have heard that GARDEN is not one kind."

— Dr. Chao, Chao Laboratory


Chao Gardens are a sanctuary for Chao, and are also the primary location for raising Chao in the Sonic Adventure games.

These gardens tend to be out of the way from human interaction, such as the Egg Carrier garden being on a small island and the Hero Garden being amongst the clouds.

SA1DC/SADX

Accessing these gardens requires the player to find the entrances in the overworld maps of SA1.

Station Square Garden

Main article: Station Square Garden

The Station Square Garden is a garden located in the Station Square overworld in SA1. It can be found in the hotel lobby within one of the lifts.

It is often the player's first garden, and contains the only door in SA1 to the Chao Stadium, and in SADX also contains the Black Market. It consists of a flat area with a small garden of trees and a pool with a fountain.

Mystic Ruins Garden

Main article: Mystic Ruins Garden

The Mystic Ruins Garden is a garden located in the Mystic Ruins overworld. It can be found in a cave at the bottom of the hill which has Tail's house at the top.

It has several hills and a large natural pool.

Egg Carrier Garden

Main article: Egg Carrier Garden

The Egg Carrier Garden is a garden located in the Egg Carrier overworld. It can be found inside the Egg Carrier within a door, after finishing a small puzzle where the character must spell 'E-G-G-M-A-N'.

It is a small island with a sandy beach and machine debris, with an satellite dish in the centre.

SA2

To access these gardens, one must find a Chao Key in an Action Stage to access the Chao World's Chao Lobby. The character who is played within the action stage will be the one to enter the Chao World; they will also be added to the character select found when accessing the Chao World through the stage select. Each character must find a chao key before they can enter this way, but only 1 character is required to access the Chao World via the stage select.

Unlike SA1, the Chao gardens do not contain the Black Market, nor do they have the Chao Transporter option to rename chao. These are instead located in the Chao Kindergarten.

Chao Garden

Main article: Chao Garden

The Chao garden is a garden located on the main level of the Chao Lobby, directly in front of the portal where the player enters the Chao World. It is the player's first garden and is unlocked by default, and contains the only entrance in SA2 to the Chao Stadium. The garden consists of a regular hilly grass floor, with a cliff featuring a waterfall cave with a pool at the bottom.

While in the Chao Garden, second evolution strength increases over time as well as via feeding. Alignment does not change over time within this garden.

Hero Garden

Main article: Hero Garden

The Hero garden is a garden located on the upper level of the Chao Lobby, up a set of stairs to the left of the Chao Garden entrance; however, this can only be accessed once the player has obtained a Hero chao through the evolution of one of their own child chao; transferring a Hero chao to their save file will not work. The garden consists of several ruins and pillars, with a pool in the centre with a fountain.

In the Hero Garden, second evolution strength increases twice as fast as that of the Chao Garden. Alignment also increases over time for the Chao in the garden, meaning Chao become more Hero-aligned, discussed in further detail on the Alignment page of this wiki.

Dark Garden

Main article: Dark Garden

The Dark garden is a garden located on the lower level of the Chao Lobby, down a set of stairs to the left of the Chao Kindergarten entrance; however, this can only be accessed once the player has obtained a Dark chao through the evolution of one of their own child chao; transferring a Dark chao to their save file will not work. The garden consists of several tombstones with a red pool in the centre, with the default 3 garden trees appearing dead but still bearing fruit.

In the Dark Garden, second evolution strength does not increase over time; it is only increased via feeding. Alignment also decreases over time for the Chao in the garden, meaning Chao become more Dark-aligned, discussed in further detail on the Alignment page of this wiki.
