First Light Village Playspace

Tucked into upland forest along the Upland Walk, First Light Village is a nature playspace, a special place for children to enjoy creative outdoor play. In contrast to traditional playgrounds, nature playspaces are made almost entirely of natural materials. Designed and constructed by a local Eagle Scout with a keen interest in Native American lore, the playspace features two wigwams, a turtle-shaped tree stump ring, a snake balance beam, and more.

The Arboretum is committed to promoting healthy physical activity for children and families. Use of the playspace is free with admission.
