What is a natural materials playground?

It is a mixture of structures, paths, and loose materials that invite families to play in nature. This innovative, sustainable playscape engages children in creative, imaginative, and active discovery.  Kids are free to have fun and learn, experiment, and discover, all while exercising and enjoying the outdoors.

Awbury’s AdventureWoods was inspired by sketches from Studio Bryan Hanes and the built-in Awbury’s Secret Garden in 2017.

It contains two distinct natural playscapes:

  • The Willows features fairy tables, willow circles, and a log playhouse.
  • The Woodlot features large logs made from felled trees from Awbury Arboretum and is used for playing, building, climbing, and sitting.
