Get ready to see nature in a whole new light! Hideaway Woods is a two-acre, nature discovery environment featuring treehouses, a flowing streambed, and fanciful nature sculptures. The play zones in this exhibit space encourage you to flex your body and imagination all while viewing the world around you from a new perspective — sometimes up to 20 feet off the ground!
Hideaway Woods was funded by generous donors to our Climbing Higher campaign.
Why nature play?
Play in naturalized, outdoor environments can foster deeper social, physical, and emotional developments in children (and adults!). The dynamic mix of full-body movement, imaginative play and opportunities to notice or observe, provides endless opportunities to exercise our mental and physical capabilities.
