Family Fun at Broadmoor

Have fun with the whole family at Broadmoor, either on your own or during an organized program.

Nature Play Area

Nature Play Area at Broadmoor

It’s all about creativity with natural objects and a place to hop, balance, jump, stretch, and explore on rocks and logs safely placed for those activities. 

There are three play circles, one with sand, one with small rocks and one with logs. Build, stack and create patterns and mini structures with rocks. In spring and summer look for butterflies, dragonflies and bees nectaring on the native wildflowers, listen for sounds of birds.

Location

Behind the Parker Pavilion and picnic area in front of the nature center you will see tree stumps, large rocks, climbing logs surrounded by native wildflowers, shrubs and trees. There are benches where adults can watch children play.
