Children’s groups are welcome at our Rowe Woods location, both on our trails and within our Nature PlayScape. All children’s groups visiting Cincinnati Nature Center must preregister. Groups may consist of 12 to 60 people.  Admission fees are paid at the gate on the date of their visit.

If You Are Visiting Our Trails:

All children’s groups visiting our trails must preregister. All adults responsible for a group must read the Nature Center's Group Policy and Trail Rules.

  • We ask that large groups divide into 12 or fewer people when hiking on the trails.
  • Please ensure that you have one or more adults per group of 11 children.

If You Are Visiting Our Nature PlayScape:

Cincinnati Nature Center allows groups of up to 60 people to visit the Nature PlayScape, provided that they have preregistered. All group leaders must read the Group Policy and PlayScape Rules. Groups that have scheduled a trail hike cannot visit the Nature PlayScape unless prearranged. No drop-in groups will be allowed. Please note that the PlayScape is designed for children from 2-12 years old. 


We accept credit card and checks to pay for your group visit. Fees must be paid upon arrival at our front gate. There is no extra charge for parking or to visit our Nature PlayScape.
