Nature Play – Popping Up at Oak Savannah Park

Monday, June 15, 2020

These temporary nature activities areas encourage play in a more natural setting: digging, figuring out how to climb a tree, following paths, balancing on logs, building forts and so much more.

Nature playgrounds are a growing trend across the nation – and this summer Elk River will have new outdoor recreation opportunities “popping up” all over the city. Nature activities playgrounds offer a different type of experience than one may have clambering around a commercially manufactured jungle gym or swing set. Nature playgrounds encourage play in a more natural setting: digging, figuring out how to climb a tree, following paths, balancing on logs, building forts and so much more.

Pop up nature activities areas will be available at the following Elk River parks during two-week timeframes:
Oak Savannah June 15-29
Ridgewood July 6-20
Hillside Aug. 10-24

Join the fun! These temporary installments are meant to introduce Elk River park-goers to this rapidly growing recreation trend as we lead up to the grand opening of a permanent nature activities area at Woodland Trails Regional Park set to open in the fall of 2020.
