Nature Playce Grand Opening

Location:

Alliance

Event Type(s): Children Activities, Nature
Organization: Beech Creek Botanical Garden & Nature Preserve
Description: Join us for the grand opening of Nature Playce, a 2-acre nature playground that includes treehouses with a swinging bridge, a miniature zip line, giant birds nest, mud kitchen, stage and amphitheater with music area, wading pond, living willow huts, giant Lincoln Logs, and a rock wall with a slide, among other play areas. There is also a sensory path and some components of the nature playground are specifically designed for ADA accessibility. It is recommended that families bring a change of clothes or a bathing suit for their children. A nature playground is a natural play environment where children can explore and play with natural elements such as sand, water, wood and living plants. Nature Playce will help children connect with the natural world and improve their quality of life by building confidence, promoting creativity and imagination, getting kids moving, making them think, and providing a different kind of stimulation compared with other forms of play. The grand opening is Saturday, May 26, 2018 from 10 am to 5 pm at Beech Creek Botanical Garden & Nature Preserve in Alliance. General admission is free for this one-day special event!
