Event Details

Bring your family to celebrate the Discovery Center’s new Nature Play Area and a nature trail compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Research shows the value of connecting children with nature, and that playing in natural areas stimulates a passion for conservation later in life. Spaces have been created along our new trail through the woods where children can climb, balance and explore natural materials. The trail is a half-mile and is designed for wheelchair and stroller accessibility. There will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open this area at 2:15 p.m.  We will have refreshments in the Discovery Center and guides along the trail. Vehicles must have State Park Recreation Passport to enter.
