Children’s Discovery Garden
A babbling brook and a variety of shrubs and flowers that attract pollinators like butterflies make the area a garden, but Discovery Park’s youngest guests will find even more to discover in the one-of-a-kind, nature-inspired playground experience. Featured is a PlayOdyssey Tower, log steppers, log balance beams, hillside climbers, slides and a mini zip line. A chessboard with 3-foot tall pieces provides an opportunity to spend a little competitive family time.
The collection of chimes, bells, metallophones and drums were designed by Rhapsody Outdoor Musical Instruments to allow musicians of all skill levels to experience subtle shifts of tones and individual sounds combinations while making music in outdoor setting. The joy of making music can be experienced at any age so the instruments are close enough to the ground to be inviting to guests of any age.
The climbing structures were designed using using real rocks and boilders as molds and feature artificial embedded fossils. These fossils, along with a “dino bone pit” sandbox provide a chance for young—or young at heart—guests to try their hand at paleontology.
