Nature's Neighborhood

Let the kids explore a world built for their size!

The award-winning Nature’s Neighborhood opened in summer 2009 and is a naturalized nature play space for kids of all ages. Many children don’t have or take opportunities to connect with nature in our increasingly technological world. Nature’s Neighborhood is the perfect place to make those connections. Regardless of the season, there are plenty of imaginative opportunities in Nature’s Neighborhood.
