COCOPLUM NATURE PLAY
Limited Spaces Remain - Apply Now!
We are excited to welcome families in our community to Cocoplum Nature School!
Who can attend?
Families with children ages 4 through 8 are welcome. A caretaker must remain on site the whole time. Caretakers are encouraged to relax at the picnic tables and benches, and observe from a distance as the children self-direct their own play and learning. While older and younger siblings are certainly welcome at the park, please be aware that activities will be designed for pre-K and early elementary age children.
