With the help of many volunteers and a KABOOM! Grant, Lake Katherine Nature Center and Botanic Gardens is opening a new nature based play area. The play area is part of the Children’s Forest, a children centered area designated in the 2012 Master Plan completed for Lake Katherine by Upland Design. The Children’s Forest is set to be a place for kids to explore and experience nature in a fun and exciting way. Check out more about the opening and hear from the Director Gareth Blakesly in the Chicago Tribune article.
