Nature Playce at Hidden Oaks Nature Center


By DullesMoms, Feb 2020


Annandale District Park, a 52-acre oasis of nature, is home to Hidden Oaks Nature Center and family-loved Nature Playce.

After exploring the park’s woodland trails, ponds, and creeks, a stop at the Nature Center (which also doubles as a visitor center with bathrooms) is a must. Complete with live animals, hands-on activities, and interactive exhibits, you’ll find Nature Playce in the area immediately surrounding it.

Nature Playce is a 1/3-acre unstructured, woodland play area. Children can visit Nature Playce’s water feature with rocks to climb on and puddles to splash in, digging areas, and sandbox. There are also plenty of opportunities for self-directed play, including building forts and finding fallen trees and low stumps to climb on.

Enjoy a day filled with the natural wonders our community has to offer! Find Hidden Oaks Nature Center and Nature Playce at 7701 Royce St., Annandale, VA, 22003.
