Nature play during childhood is at risk of extinction. Today’s children spend only thirty minutes per week playing freely in nature. In 2005 Richard Louv coined the turn nature deficit disorder in his book Last Child in the Woods, to bring to light the startling issue of children spending less time outside.
The benefits of nature play are endless … reduced symptoms of ADD/ADHD, development of creativity and social skills, reduced risk of childhood obesity, developing a stronger immune system and influencing conservation values.
We invite you to bring your child out to our natural playspace in Rolling Hill Park. Open year-round, 7 days a week, rain or shine, it’s a special place just for kids to let loose and explore!
Climb on logs, find a stick, dig a hole in our sand pit or explore the garden for fascinating critters… your child will know what to do!
