This is a free event hosted by the Phoenix Zoo. The event takes place in Papago Park, to the north of the Zoo entrance. Admission to the Zoo is not included.

The focus of the event is for families to spend time playing in and enjoying nature together. There will be all sorts of fun stuff to play with in this beautiful outdoor setting and it’s a great way to make new friends while you play! Our “home base” for the event will be located near the stage area (which is also near Ramada 9 and 10), but we also invite you to explore and play in all areas of Papago Park.

Special thanks to City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation for supporting nature play in their parks. In addition to city parks, there are many places to play in and with nature around the Phoenix metropolitan area.

By creating a strong community in which child-directed, unstructured play is supported, we can discover all sorts of places to explore, discover, and play in nature! This event is the first in a series of free community nature play events that will be held monthly at different locations around the Phoenix metropolitan area. Upcoming events will be supported by the Phoenix Zoo and in partnership with local Community Co-Hosts who help to select the location, plan, and promote the event.
