Toddler Park

Toddler Park

An enclosed area where younger children and their grown-up companions will uncover a world of activities in an enchanting city park. The park is complete with ambient nature sounds, a pond, a garden and an eight-foot aquarium. Here imaginations will run wild with a suspension bridge, a waterfall slide that emerges from a two-dimensional stream, a boggy area surfaced with a cushy material suitable for bouncing and jumping and a hollowed out oak tree that spans three levels. If you peek inside a certain tree you might even find a cozy nursing nook! 

Learning Goals

  • Garden Pond - An enclosed, cushioned area with pond critters, just for infants and adults
  • The Oak Tree - This giant oak reaches to the sky and serves as a hallmark of Toddler Park; climb the spiral staircase inside the trunk, or muster up your nerves to visit the tree house at the top!
  • Underground Home - At the base of the tree are gnarly roots that hide a tiny woodland-home!
  • Community Garden - Work together with pint-sized citizens to plant and harvest vegetables in these raised-bed garden plots.
  • Waterfall Slide - Daintily dance across the stepping stones and over the bridge to slide down into the stream!
  • Stream - Crawl through the log, take a ride in the boat and explore the bitty river!
  • Aquarium - Marvel at the live, freshwater fish in our beautiful aquarium!
  • Nursing Nook - Moms and caregivers who need a private place to nurse, pump or soothe can visit this cozy nook for a bit of peace and quiet!
