Top 5 - Places to Enjoy Nature

Blackacre Conservancy 
Learn a little more about farming by joining in farm animal feedings, starting in May on Saturdays at 9:30am. Or start a family garden at one of the community garden plots. Trails through pastures give some wide open space to your youngsters.

3200 Tucker Station Road • 502.266.9802

Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest
Bernheim is a place to enjoy hiking, observe wildlife, or set up a spring picnic. The Children’s Play Garden offers nature-based play features, like rolling hills, fossil-filled rocks, a dry creek bed, and a scavenger hunt trail.

2499 Clermont Road, Clermont, Kentucky • 502.955.8512

Louisville Zoo
If you’re searching for an outing fit for the entire family, the zoo is the right place. Your kids can learn about any one of the 1500 animals as part of zoo’s behind-the-scenes tours. Or if you want to take some time out for relaxation, let them run around in the outpost playground. Some of their other great attractions include the Papa John’s Splash Park, the ropes and adventure courses, and Glacier Run.

1100 Trevilian Way • 502.459.2181

Joe Huber Family Farm
Learning how fruit grows on trees, bushes, or vines and eating the rewards is part of what the Joe Huber Family Farm offers to visiting families. A large lake outside the restaurant where you can eat fried chicken sets the scene for a perfect spring farm visit.

2421 Engle Road, Starlight, Indiana • 812.923.5255

Yew Dell Botanical Gardens
With more than 12,000 plants, and more than a mile of hiking trails, Yew Dell offers a great natural space. We especially like the activity packs that can be checked out while on the grounds at no charge. Backpacktivities include sketch pads, colored pencils, and scavenger hunts. Book-N-Blanket Bags, filled with a Yew Dell blanket and garden/nature-themed children’s books, make for a relaxed visit to the garden. Also, children’s classes are offered every Saturday until September.

6220 Old Lagrange Road • 502.241.4788
