What Is A Playscape?

Think of a Playscape as a big, beautiful, natural park with open spaces, trees, rocks, hills and water...where you are free to roam about and enjoy natural surroundings in your own neighborhood as part of daily life.

A Playscape allows children to experience unstructured play in a natural environment. In the Miller Ecological Park Playscape there is be a creek to cross, natural boulders and sand, mounds and hills to run on, log balance beams and steps, and tunnels ..and more.  The Playscape allows children to experience nature with their family.

Providing children with the opportunity to connect with nature is an important component of their development. A Playscape also provides educational opportunities for children to learn about the natural history and ecology of the environment in which they live.
