Detroit Mountain Natural Play Area
Detroit Mountain Recreation Area
~1 Acre Site
Detroit Lakes, Minnesota
Detroit Mountain’s Natural Play Area expands the all-season recreation park, located in the heart of Minnesota.
Detroit Mountain was looking to further appeal to their youngest guests by connecting nature with play. This sets the stage for children to develop confidence and health - the foundation for exploring the rest of what Detroit Mountain has to offer.
The play area challenges children’s flexibility and motor skills with natural climbing structures, a tunnel and balancing logs. The space is located on the edge of the forest, allowing visitors to introduce unstructured play with deadfall, sticks and rocks within the play area.
