The Mahr Park Arboretum Nature Play Area is set to open on Friday, December 3.
Opened by the City of Madisonville, the play area is designed to encourage children to interact with their environment through play. The play area equipment was created with natural materials like Douglas fir wood.
Play equipment includes a see-saw, quad swings, log stepper, giant rope swing, tunnel features, and much more.
Nearly 300 native plants surround the play area, offering children a chance to learn more about their surroundings.
The centerpiece of the Nature Play Area is the "Circle of Peace" statue. Children are invited to interact with the statue which represents respect and compassion.
