Take Me There
This is a great playground with beauty abounding. The surface is rubber mulch rather than wooden and features two adaptive swings. There’s a lot of opportunity for climbing and many slides of various lengths. There are also benches situated nicely in the shade. Be sure to pack a lunch and take a stroll through the arboretum. Seasonal Restrooms are located near the parking lot closest the playground.
The arboretum at Kent Park provides a truly beautiful stroll any time of the year and is free to enter. The Webster Public Library has graciously provided videos giving a glimpse of what you may expect from the Arboretum each month. Check them out! Some paths are paved, others are gravel but all are stroller friendly. Just note, it can get muddy when there has been a lot of rain. The arboretum building is not open to the public but can be rented out. Keep a close eye for butterflies and other wildlife here and be sure to visit in the spring when the lilacs, magnolias and many other flowering plants are in full bloom.
A creek runs through the Webster Arboretum and in the center of the park you find where the pond runs into the creek, creating a miniature waterfall. The creek is shallow with some spots for easy access, so (carefully) check out some water life while at the arboretum!
The Little Free Library
This one is so fun to get to! In order to score your fresh book at this Little Free Library you must first complete the hedge maze! The hedge maze can be found right near the Webster Arboretum building (use the second parking lot if you want to skip the hike from the playground). Before heading out, pack some books of your own to make a trade if possible. The maze can get muddy so wear boots!
