NVCA does not have any formal playground structures, though we encourage our young visitors to come and explore our “Free Play Forest” at the Tiffin Conservation Area.

Children playing in free play forest at Tiffin

As a build-it-yourself, loose-parts playground, children transform “The Hive” using rails, logs, planks and natural materials. This Free Play Forest is a place for imagination, exploration and problem solving through open-ended play.

Families are welcome to use the Free Play Forest when it is not occupied by our education programs. It is located beside the Jose Education Building.

This project is generously funded by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.
