Nature-Based Play Area

Our Nature Based Play Area is CLOSED for the winter! 

We make a decision to re-open in the spring based on weather. This has typically taken place in mid-April in past years. Please check back for updates and we will announce when it is open. 

Nature Play, children’s unstructured outdoor play, enhances physical and mental health while encouraging life-long conservation values.

Springbrook Nature Center and its programs provide structured and unstructured opportunities to learn about and enjoy nature. We strongly endorse individual, family and neighborhood outdoor play and hope you will join us in encouraging a love of nature for adults and children.
