Hours Notes

Nature play spaces are open from 6 am to 11 pm.


Come out & explore the Nature Play Space at Northerly Island Park. We invite kids (and their adults) to have spontaneous, hands-on, fun-filled, imaginative play. Muddy sneakers are encouraged. Ideas for play include climbing Mulch Mountain, building a fort, exploring the play prairie, and digging for worms in the honeycomb bins. During your visit, please remember to respect plants, wildlife, and others.
