Enchanted Forest Fun – Postponed
ChesLen Preserve | Fri, July 27, 2018, 10:00am - 12:00pm
Due to the recent wet weather, trail conditions, and Friday’s forecasted storms, ChesLen Preserves’ fairies and gnomes have decided to postpone their summer celebration. The Enchanted Forest Fun event will now be held next Wednesday, August 1st from 10:00 AM -12:00 PM.
The fairies and gnomes of Ollie Owl’s NaturePlayGround at ChesLen Preserve are hosting a summer celebration!
Families are invited to explore our Enchanted Forest during a morning of nature play, activities, and light refreshments. Kids, create your own fairy or gnome home to take home!
We love seeing kids having fun outdoors! Post your photos on social media with #natlands to tag us.
ChesLen Preserve is the largest privately owned nature preserve open to the public in Chester County. Miles of marked hiking trails lead visitors through shady woodlands, flower-filled meadows, fields of corn and soybeans, and stream valleys.
Visitors can also explore Ollie Owl’s NaturePlayGround, where young explorers can climb logs, build stick tee-pees, hunt for bugs, explore small streams, and get a little dirty, tired, and inspired. Free play is encouraged and is a great way for kids to gain an appreciation for nature.
Wear sturdy shoes for exploring uneven terrain.
Please DO NOT TOUCH OR MOVE any of the fairy or gnome homes – leave them for the next families to find!.
Ollie Owl’s trail is not suitable for most strollers.
Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
Ollie Owl’s NaturePlayGround is located at 1199 Cannery Road, Coatesville, PA. Look for the arches on the left-hand side of the parking area to guide you down the trail to the NaturePlayGround.
Restrooms are available a short walk away at the Lenfest Center pavilion.
Play at your own risk.
The NaturePlayGround is closed during inclement weather and high winds.
Event is free. Registration required. Please complete and submit the secure, on-line registration form below to let us know you are coming, or call 610-353-5587 ext. 221.
