Ideas for Outdoor Play with Toddlers

☀️ Head to a local playground!

Check out our list of shaded playgrounds
Read our review of  The Rotary Playground in Hernando’s Landing at Lake Parker Park
See our directory for a full list of local playgrounds

☀️ Feed the ducks – Lake Morton is the best place to find an abundance of birds. Take corn (canned, frozen or fresh), duck pellets (sold at pet stores), lettuce or greens, defrosted frozen peas, or birdseed. Bread is bad for the ducks and swans!

☀️ Circle B Bar Reserve – Look for alligators, eagles, and other amazing wildlife at Circle B Bar Reserve– named one of the “Top 51 Places in the US to See Wildlife” by USA Today! Entry is FREE. Toddlers will also enjoy exploring the Nature Center and playing in the “treehouse” inside.

☀️ Hammock Hollow Children’s Garden at Bok Tower – Children under 5 are free, adult admission only $15. Click here to read our review.

☀️ Mulberry Phosphate Museum – Dig for sharks teeth and fossils in the outdoor phosphate pile, then head inside to see the skeletons and shark teeth on display insideMake sure you bring a small shovel or other item to dig through the rock pile, and something to sit on – you won’t want to kneel. (The phosphate pile is always open, visit the website for museum hours)

☀️ Little Free Library  – find a little library around town where you can take a book and/or leave a book – for FREE! Clean out your bookshelves and leave a few at each location, and hopefully you’ll find something to take with you. Use the map at littlefreelibrary.org to find one near you.

☀️ Visit a Farmers Market – Pick up fresh local produce at a local market – there are 5 across Polk County that happen on various days during the week

☀️ Go on a picnic – One of our favorite locations is Peterson Park and then we walk the nature trails and boardwalks afterward.
