The 3 gardens are the chao's homes.
Note:All gardens have 3 nut trees and hold 8 chao.They also all have a chao transporter, but only the neutral garden has a chao stadium.
This garden is the garden you start with.It has a large rock mountain and a waterfall that leads to the chao stadium.This garden has a pool of water.
The hero garden has the terrace (in pic), and a fountain creating a pool.
The dark garden has a huge tree(in pic), a cage hanging on the tree(cut off from pic), tombstones, dead plants, a blood pool, and a island with a tombstone on it.
To get to the gardens...
To access this garden, find a chao box like the one below in an action stage.
There are 3 of these in a stage.The first gives you a chao key(below), 2nd gives 4 animals, 3rd gives either a unicorn or a dragon.
Use this key to get into the chao garden, and unlock it in stage select.
Dark Garden and Hero Garden
To access the dark garden, first get the neutral garden.Now take a chao egg, feed it with a dark character, if a neutral chao, pet until black, pet anyway, give it drives and animals with dark character to get it to favour the dark side.After 1-3 hours it will go into a blue cocoon and evolve.If you did it right, it will have a spiky emotiball.Now the stairs going down to the dark garden are in the lobby.
To access the hero garden, do the same as the dark, except use a hero character, it comes out a halo emotiball, and the stairs appear going UP to the hero garden.
