Dudley Porter Nature Playscape

To be sure, Reflection Riding offers 317 acres of natural playground for all ages.  Exclusively for  children, though, right behind the Visitor Center, lies the interactive Playscape.

Nature Center staff and volunteers completed construction of the Dudley Porter Nature Playscape between 2012 and 2013, thanks to a 2011 bequest from Mr. Porter’s estate and a grant from the UnFoundation.

The playground is a creative haven for children, featuring a web for climbing, a xylophone for musical styling, a bamboo tunnel for exploring, and a covered bench where grown-ups can rest and watch the children play.

Prominent in the Playscape is a mountain rock of ideal height for clambering and for family photos.
