Bring a kid to a park and see what they see and experience, maybe it’s a new perspective that you may not have thought of before! You can share your memories of the site with your young visitor, and then make new memories!
There are plenty of parks in our Heritage Area to explore! You may be familiar with Black Jack Battlefield as a battlefield, but did you know it is also a Nature Park? Venture out to Black Jack, right outside Baldwin City, Kansas, and explore the “savannah ecotone located between the eastern deciduous woodland and the tall grass prairie in the central great plains of North America.” There is a nature trail that travels through the park and even up into the restored prairie.
Most all the sites you will find in our Heritage Area offer special programs for kids and their families. Check our events calendar for upcoming programs in our sites and bring a kid to a park!
