A time to explore and play for children of all abilities ages 6 and older

You’re invited to play at Friendship Grove Nature Playscape at the Anita Purves Nature Center. A Nature Play Facilitator will help inspire imaginations every Tuesday in May from 4 to 6 p.m.

The playscape is located at 1505 N. Broadway in Urbana.

The playscape is a hands-on, kid-directed outdoor play space where boulders, logs, and other thoughtfully curated natural items give kids’ imaginations room to soar. The space provides accessible play opportunities for all abilities.

A facilitator will be on-hand with extra supplies and “loose parts” to encourage exploration and fun. Loose parts will have a unique theme each time and may include pots and pans, baskets for gathering, cardboard for forts and more.

Activities are recommended for children ages 6 and older of all abilities with adult supervision.

Come and go anytime during program hours.

Sign up by calling (217) 384-4062.
