In the woods, we came upon this. We called it a playhouse because we had no idea what it was (thus using my mobile device may have been helpful–if I had one)
Whatever it was, the kids sure loved it. Unlike me, they weren’t trying to figure out what it was. They just took it for a fun little place house and did just that. Played!
The thing that I loved the most about this park was that it had no playground equipment. None! You get to just play in the woods. What can be more creative than just playing and exploring? Whereas playgrounds can be lots of fun, so can nature.
Silverwood Park makes nature so much fun!
They have a few buildings on their property; some classrooms and a visitor’s center. The visitor’s center has a coffee shop and a small gallery displaying different shows. This is what was there when we visited.
Another thing that Silverwood Park’s visitor’s center has is craft supplies for kids to help themselves to in the coffee shop/gallery area. A small table the perfect height for a preschool is filled with paper, crayons, and other art supplies. Silverwood Park is serious in its mission of integrating art and nature.
They offer a calendar full of different activities for every age from preschooler to senior adult. Preschool classes and family classes, music classes, yoga classes, nature hikes. Silverwood Park is full of many different possibilities.
What does this mean? I don’t know what blind contour drawing is which might help explain to me what I was actually looking at.
This is an experience we plan to do often.
And the best bonus is no entrance fees or parking fees!
