About This Experience

Located in Musquodoboit Valley, less than an hour’s drive from Halifax, the Nature Learning and Play Space is the perfect place for kids to connect with nature and have fun.

Unlike playgrounds built out of plastic and metal, a Nature Learning and Play Space uses trees, plants, water and rocks to create a place where kids can enjoy healthy activity and learn to appreciate their environment.

The play space is open seven days a week, from 8:00 am to dusk, and is free of charge. Parents are reminded that the space is not supervised and they are responsible for their children at all times.
