Play will be on pause and the Woodland Discovery Playground is temporarily closed as we replace the safety surfacing in the playground! This special project will replace the rubber ground cover, which will enhance your child’s play experience.
Why are you closing the whole playground? Safety first! This will also allow the work to be done faster, getting you back on the playground sooner!
Why now? The safety surfacing can only be installed in certain weather conditions, and hotter temperatures are ideal.
How long will it be closed? Like any outdoor work, this project is weather dependent, but we hope to have this space opened in time for playing in slightly cooler temperatures.
Thanks for your patience as we work in this space!
Did you know that this innovative play space was designed for kids, by kids?
Input from little play experts, play theorists and landscape architects shaped this special space, which has earned international awards for innovative and sustainable design!
In fact, the Woodland Discovery Playground was named one of the "16 Coolest Playgrounds in the World" by Mental Floss Magazine, and it was one of the first three sites in the world to earn Sustainable SITES Certification.
The Woodland Discovery Playground features six play nests, each focused on a different type of play. Here, children of all ages abilities can discover new ways to play!

Young climbers ages 6-12 will enjoy scaling our two kids’ boulders! These climbing boulders are 7 feet tall and 6 feet in diameter and have hand and footholds carved into the surface with varying levels of difficulty. Climbing boulders can help build confidence, improve coordination, increase strength, enhance problem solving skills. Plus, it's just fun!

The climbing boulders honor a boy who taught us to “look” every day. Look for the beauty all around you, in the clouds, the trees, the lake, the birds. Look for ways to show kindness because you can make a difference with just a smile.
Look for adventure by experiencing and learning new things. And stop each day to look for hearts that come in all sizes and colors, for they unite us in love.
Michael's Rock was made possible by the generous support of hundreds of Michael’s friends and family and the Hyde Family Foundation, in the hopes that it will inspire new generations of children to love climbing and seek adventure and discovery in the natural world around them.
