The Zofnass Barclay Family Nature Play trail, along the edge of Duck Lake, is a place where visitors of all ages can play, learn, connect with and ultimately care for nature. In this space, meant to be slightly wild, children have the freedom to leave the trail, climb under bushes, find bugs, dig in the soil, and immerse themselves in the kind of refuge that only nature can provide. Hidden markers hint at things children can touch, smell, hear and see as they explore. Zoo educators play alongside children as they discover, encouraging them to observe, wonder and try.
The Zofnass Barclay Family Nature Play Trail is made possible through the generosity of the Zofnass Barclay Family Foundation.
