Tacoma Nature Centerís Discovery Pond

The Nature Exploration Area at the Tacoma Nature Center is not a traditional playground.  Discovery Pond enables children to discover natural concepts and materials through a combination of exploration, tactile learning, physical play, cause-and-effect examination, and educational signage.  The pond creates a playful setting where children can play in shallow water, crawl through hollowed-out logs, scramble up small hills, control the flow of water, play in sand, and in tree houses.
