Wow! Just, wow! White Deer Park has quickly become one of our places to play in this area, because it has everything!! A great playground, a natural playground, an environmental education center, gorgeous woods to play in, trails, a stream to explore… really, it is just the most beautiful park to spend an afternoon! The girls love the long slide in the hill at the nature playground, that leads down to a forested area perfect for building forts and bridges. There are no shortage of cool things to climb and play on, and if you head over to the environmental center, you can meet some cool local animals, and even take a class or do a craft in their beautiful classroom. There is a back deck area for birdwatching, and a small kids garden area to check out near the educational center. Just down the path, you will find a few accesses to a small stream, great for poking around to find frogs and other creatures. On the other side of the park, you’ll find some awesome playground equipment, including some really cool swings that even grownups love! There is also a beautiful meadow and some cool historic artifacts in that area. Check out this park with your family soon, you won’t be disappointed!
Know Before You Go: There are restrooms at both the Nature Center and the Picnic Shelter near the playground.
Some of the playground in the Nature Playground is tough for smaller children. My youngest was catapulted right off of a see-saw. There are also lots of splinters in the natural playground (it’s really natural!)
We have seen a few snakes in the natural playground area.
There are great classes and some drop in activities in the Nature Center. Find them here
