We're all looking for fun outings with the kids during the summer and the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI has new exhibits dedicated to development of imagination, active play and social interaction.

Phase Two of Hasbro's Our Big Backyard is complete! 

Here is some information from the RWPZ about this innovative area:

Hasbro’s Our Big Backyard is a new kind of nature play and exploration area for children and their families. It includes Our House, an indoor activity space, and The Nature Swap, a special place to trade items that you’ve collected when out exploring nature. Our Backyard, the ultimate play space, is staffed by specially trained Play Partner volunteers to help you make the most of the “The Drip Drop Water Garden,” “The Sticks & Stones Building Zone,” and “Creativity Corner.”  Then explore the nature trail Beyond the Fence and wend your way to the CVS Caremark All Kids Can Treehouse packed with things to touch, hear, smell, and see.

The space includes a climbing area, stump jumps, a maze of trees, fort kits and a woodchuck tunnel!

Have fun...and if you make a trip to Providence, let us know how it goes!
