Glenwood Children's Park - Madison, WI

GLENWOOD CHILDREN'S PARK - 602 Glenwood Street, Madison, WI

Upon the recommendation of a friend, my daughter and I visited the Glenwood Children's Park last week. World famous architect Jens Jensen created this park in 1949 "for children to enjoy nature at its best." It is a Madison historic landmark.

We climbed on ginormous logs, explored a spooky tunnel, built forts, and picnicked within a council ring of large stones.

Most children today have nature-deficit and spend very little time outdoors. Child psychologists, educators, and even Congress are now touting the idea of "No child left indoors." I too encourage you to take your children to this park to enjoy nature at its best.

"As you witness the touch of His hand in the wonders of nature you too will feel closer to God." - quote from park marker

P.S. As an added bonus, we hid a letterbox for all of you letterboxers to find!
