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. Stay up-to-date on these fun new developments at the Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest Facebook page.
