LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Bernheim Forest plans to open a 10-acre outdoor adventure area this fall to provide a natural playground for families.

“Playcosystem is designed in harmony with nature to provide children with open-ended, physically challenging, and unstructured play opportunities that support healthy development,” Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest said on its website.

The forest is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and a reopening date has not yet been set — though staffers have continued to work.

This fall, families will have access to more areas of natural playgrounds to “stimulate children’s imagination, boost their energy levels and increase the time they spend playing,” the organization said.
