Building off of the 2013 Dan Ryan Woods Master Plan, a new nature play garden and custom treehouse deck was built in 2019 adjacent to the Visitor Center. The design of the nature play garden includes custom wood play features, varying textures and materials, native plantings, and free-form play areas to promote creative play. The garden promotes inventive play with natural materials while accommodating children of all ages and abilities.
