NaturePlay@BCM

Learning is fun at NaturePlay@BCM, an innovative new play space in Devou Park, where kids are inspired to explore nature while learning about the region’s heritage and natural history.

Located just outside Behringer-Crawford Museum, NaturePlay@BCM provides kids a dynamic landscape where they can play and engage with others. They’ll enjoy a range of fun activities like exploring a flatboat, navigating a rocky cave, imagining life in a log cabin and discovering fossils. There’s also lots of space to dig in the dirt, run free and experience the world around them.

NaturePlay@BCM is open seven days a week, from dawn until dusk, and is free to use.

All pathways and major play features are ADA accessible. 

Parking is free and can be found in the Behringer-Crawford Museum parking lot.
