Come play at the Children's Nature Playscape!
Located just south of the Summit Park Observation Tower, the Children’s Nature Playscape isn’t an average playground. The purposeful and unique design is filled with the earth’s elements including water, mud, sticks, and timber instead of the rubber and plastic found in traditional playgrounds. Children can immerse themselves in nature as they play in forts, explore an underground hobbit-hole, race down child-sized zip lines, and engage in shallow water play. This allows kids to get a little dirty while learning about the world around them. The Children's Nature Playscape utilizes the earth's elements and natural building materials to influence unstructured play in a secure and untraditional environment. Playscapes have been proven to encourage social interaction and independence, connect children with nature, evoke creativity and problem solving, teach risk tasking, and force imaginative play.
