Road Trip: Treewalk Village in Stouffville

TreewalkVillageIt’s treetop trekking for the littles.

The boys (and a grandpa in TOw) went north on a sunny Sunday to check out Treewalk Village, an outdoor adventure park in the middle of Bruce’s Mill Conservation Area in Stouffville. The forest playland is filled with colourful treehouses connected by hammock-style bridges, ramps, tunnels, slides and obstacle courses for kids two-and-up.TreewalkBridge

It’s really fun.

Adults in TOw can climb along too, or in my case, get stuck in the middle of a swaying 8-ft tall rope bridge with a screaming three-year-old. (It was a bit much for him at first – he eventually got his tree legs.) My school-aged guy ran wild for the two-hour window (there is a time limit.) Overall, it felt very safe and so liberating to have them explore ‘in the woods’ on their own while keeping eyes on them from below and beside.

Can’t wait to return when there are leaves on the trees!
