Bernheim Forest is excited to announce the opening of Playcosystem’s Zone 1, the first phase of a new 10-acre natural playground at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, on May 22. Playcosystem is designed in harmony with nature to provide children with open-ended, physically challenging, and unstructured play opportunities that support healthy development.

Playcosystem will consist of three zones: the Nature Playground with constructed areas to meet the developmental needs of young children; TreeCess in a park-like setting, where children will be able to engage in more adventurous play; and Adventure Forest, a five-acre forest where children will have free range to unstructured exploration play in the woods.

TreeCess and Adventure Forest will be completed at a later date.
