Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park
(COVINGTON, KY) – Our community briefing for NaturePlay@BCM earlier this month had to be rescheduled, but the good news is that the weather is much better and new features have been installed in the meantime at our innovative new playspace.
Please join us as we unveil the progress to date, make a major announcement about funding and literally raise the roof on one of the playground’s key structures. There will be children on hand to “test drive” some of NaturePlay’s unique features, including kid-size pioneer cabins, a working flatboat, a zipline “History in Motion” swing and a giant, climbable trilobite (an extinct fossil arthropod.) And who says NaturePlay is just for kids? If you want to take a turn, we won’t tell!
NaturePlay@BCM is located behind Behringer-Crawford Museum at 1600 Montague Road, in Devou Park. It’s a collaboration between BCM and the Devou Good Project, a Covington nonprofit whose mission is to help other nonprofits bring their ideas to fruition. Designed by POD Design and being built by Triton Services, Inc., NaturePlay@BCM is a gated and completely inclusive area where kids can run free, dig in the dirt, get to know the natural world, and at the same time, be exposed to and gain an understanding of the region’s prehistory and pioneer settlements.
NaturePlay@BCM is slated to open to the public in June 2016. Visit www.natureplaybcm.org for more information.
