When you need a new place to getaway, head to the Toledo Botanical Gardens for beautiful sites and a cool treehouse playground.

Botanical Garden trips aren’t ususally kid’s top pick, but your littles will be begging to go back after they see the new Secret Forest treehouse playground. The two story playhouse is accessible by cool wood and rope bridges. Kids can be free in nature and test their skills climbing and exploring on multiple play structures.

After they’ve had their fun, take a stroll through the gardens to see the plants and flowers in full bloom. You’ll also find massive art displays to engage kids too.

Best of all, the Toledo Botanical Gardens are FREE to enjoy! Making it an easy excuse to take a little road trip.
