A Brand New Nature Playground In Kentucky Is THE Kid-Friendly Place To Be This Summer

I write like it's my job - because it is! I have a Master's in English and love words: crossword puzzles, Scrabble games, Wordle, and, of course, good, old-fashioned books.
I'm a writer and editor at OnlyInYourState, and a contributing writer at Cincinnati Magazine. I love the Great Outdoors and am endlessly awestruck by this beautiful country of ours. Coffee keeps me going, yoga keeps me sane, my kids keep me grounded, and my writing keeps me inspired.
Kentucky’s Bernheim Arboretum is one of those places that will completely sweep you off your feet. Not only is it incredibly beautiful, but it’s wondrous, too, with winsome woodland giants found all over its gorgeous, 16,137-acre grounds. Recently, the park added a new children’s playground to the mix, and it’s just as dreamy and whimsical as you’d expect. Bernheim’s Playcosystem, a new 10-acre natural playground, is now open, and it’s truly *the* kid-friendly place to be in Kentucky this summer!
Looking ahead, the next two zones will be the TreeCess, a park-like setting wherein children will be able to engage in more adventurous play; and the Adventure Forest, a five-acre forest where children will have free range to unstructured exploration play in the woods.
