Nature Play


May 1, 2019 to Oct 31, 2019
10:00 AM until 04:00 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


This rustic play area encourages kids to use what’s available in the outdoors for fun; learning to love nature and loving to learn naturally.  

The concept of Nature Play is to give children space to discover the wonders of the natural world in an intuitive and informal way. Children are invited to create their own play patterns with a variety of natural elements, including fallen tree trunks and stumps; twigs and hollow logs; tree bark pieces; water and dirt.  Seating for adults is provided, so kids may explore at their own pace for an extended time. 

Nature Play has been proven to help children learn self-reliance, make independent observations and decisions and solve problems. Such experiences encourage a lifetime of environmental stewardship and connections with the natural world.


$20, adults; $10, kids; FREE, ages 2 & younger
