The Tot Orchard is a safe place for our youngest visitors (0-3) to explore. Pick apples, cherries, and peaches from fruit trees. Push a fruit cart and fill up the tractor. Bake a pie or applesauce in the orchard kitchen and serve it at the picnic table, or simply take a jaunt up the stairs and down the ramps. Orchard crates and an apple bushel hold popular busy board activities. Play peek-a-boo at the windows, feel air whoosh, turn on lights, and create faces. Ample seating makes this a restful space for adults and kids alike, and a nearby nursing and reading area provides privacy and down time.

Toddlers wind toy trains through a miniature landscape at the Train Table.
