- Multiple log climbers
- Secret rock cave
- Sloping rock climber
- Vertical climbing log with handholds
- Carved chair
- Living willow tunnel
The small nature play area is designed for toddlers and features beaver habitat, including:
- A swimming beaver and a beaver set on a log (fun to climb on)
- A beaver lodge with building poles: gather sticks to build your own lodge
- Climber logs
Additional features will be added in the future. Portions of the trail and park may have short-term closures as construction wraps up.
