The Chattanooga Zoo announces the grand opening of its interactive, naturalistic Nature Play playground. The Nature Play will include a honeycomb jungle gym, giant insects to climb, multiple musical components, a gazebo hut, a dig pit, a crawl through tunnel, boulders, and more.
The Zoo’s new Nature Play will encourage outdoor physical activity, provide an educational environment for play, and will fulfill the zoo’s missions by creating ways to connect children with nature and wildlife.
"We are so excited to add this new feature to the Zoo, said Dardenelle Long, Zoo CEO and president. "Nature Play is a project our team has been very passionate about, and was inspired by our commitment of conserving nature and wildlife, and educating those for our future. Through much
community support and our team’s dedicated work, we are honored to offer a fun, hands-on learning environment offered daily to our guests.”
The official Nature Play grand opening ceremony will take place on April 22 at 10 a.m. at the Chattanooga Zoo. The ceremony is open to the public. For more information on details and to RSVP, please contact Hannah Hammon, director of Advancement, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
