Forest Explorers- Coppell Nature Park
Parents with children ages 0+. This FREE weekly group is parent led and meets year-round, pending safe weather! Please PM us if you need to communicate the morning of the hike to let us know you’re coming!
It is best to meet in the parking lot of the Biodiversity Center at 10:00am (bathrooms are usually unlocked but not always).
Fridays from 10 AM – 11:30 AM
Coppell Nature Park
367 Freeport Pkwy, Coppell, Texas 75019
THINGS TO BRING:
Water, snacks, bug spray, shoes you can get wet, small towel (if you can spare the room), curious children. (Terrain strollers are not recommended for this trail as there are stairs, narrow paths and/ or cross over creeks. That being said, with another parent, they’ve been carried through in the past)
FINDING COPPELL NATURE PARK
Turn into Wagon Wheel Park and follow straight to the end (past baseball fields) then turn right to park. (Following signs to the Biodiversity Education Center will get you there)
For a straight shot to the creek, start at Callie’s Crossing. Keep left the whole way and the path will lead you to the creek where we all end up. This is a favorite spot for kids to explore.
“Forest Explorer Groups” (a division of Forest School For All):
Calling all parents of curious children! If you’ve been looking for opportunities where your child can play, explore and wander in the great outdoors with other children, we welcome you to our Forest Explorer Groups. In these weekly outdoor gatherings, you can expect to meet other families looking for similar experiences. Our Forest Explorer Groups are parent-led, but without structured activities. This is a chance for children to get together and play however their little hearts and their little hands desire. Forest Explorer Groups are FREE to join, meet year round, pending safe weather, and require no registration. Join whenever works for you!
