Welcome to the Nature PlayScape, where natural features are designed for open-ended creative play. Plants, soil, and water can be touched and manipulated, not just observed, to stimulate the senses and promote a sense of wonder. Picnic on the grass or relax on a bench while your children play.

We ask that you remain in the Nature PlayScape and be responsible for your children at all times. Please note that dogs are not allowed in the Nature PlayScape.
