Climb a birch tree and hang out underground in a squirrel's midden. Get busy as a bee with our live bee hive and build your own flower to pollinate. These are just some of the things you can do in the Tegler Discovery Zone.

This indoor play space re-creates local wildlife habitat in a way that allows children to learn about nature through play.

Crawling and climbing structures are designed for children up to age 10, although all ages are welcome to explore the rest of the Tegler Discovery Zone.

Please note: socks are required in the Discovery Zone. Bare feet are not allowed.
