A Day at the ‘Fun Forest’

I’m the kind of Mom who is always on the lookout for a good play space, whether that be a public playground or admission-collecting indoor play area. So, this past weekend when we “stumbled upon” the “Fun Forest,” I felt like I had hit the jackpot!

We were out and about running errands in Chesapeake, and I had promised them we would go play, so I decided to look up the options in the area…and I saw that within the nearby city park was a place called “Fun Forest.” Okay, easy enough. Well, when we arrived it was so much more than the photos or my imagination had led me to believe, in a GREAT way!

First off, it’s on the edge of the park, secluded from the other area, nestled in a hammock-like area of trees. There are several different play areas, namely tree-fort/castle like structures for the children to run around and get lost in, sort of maze-like too with stairs and ramps leading up and down, with obstacles and slides to maneuver in and out. And — I definitely appreciated that there were 2 versions of the dark-wood tree houses, to accommodate toddlers and the older aged set.
