28 Oct Donald and Barbara Zucker Natural Exploration Area
We were delighted to hear about the recent opening of the Donald and Barbara Zucker Natural Exploration Area in Prospect Park. Designed in Olmsted and Vaux’s rustic tradition, the project returns the lawn to its historic purpose as “The Children’s Playground.”
Using trees damaged by recent storms and other materials from within the Park, the Exploration Area stimulates the imaginations of young visitors and engages them with nature as they play. Natural elements such as sand and water encourage unstructured free play, allowing children to exercise their minds as well as their muscles.
The new addition was made possible by a generous gift from the Donald and Barbara Zucker Family Foundation.
