Kids of all ages can enjoy this natural playground while participating in many different types of play. The fort is a gathering space and an area for passive recreation led by imagination. The labyrinth provides an opportunity for kids to explore and focus on the path ahead. Water and sand play lets kids experiment with different materials and play with natural elements. The Brook Trout custom play structure provides space for activity or for quieter passive recreation. The Brook Trout was chosen because it is an important species to the King City and Oak Ridges Moraine area. The log jam is the most active feature inviting kids of all ages to challenge themselves by climbing and balancing on the different logs. There are many different opportunities for parents to sit and relax while watching their kids play, either near a specific feature or in the central seating area.
