The Nest

The Nest is the perfect spot for all to enjoy imaginative play. Two iconic cardinal play structures serve as the anchors, while a splash pad will provide fun during hot days. There are also multiple slides and a toddler play area so that the fun never stops.

Endless ways to play

Inspired by the state bird of North Carolina, the male and female cardinal play structures are at the heart of The Nest. Visitors can climb the tail feathers or across the branch-like beams to go inside the birds. Ropes attached to a central column simulate the experience of climbing a pine tree. A large, stainless steel tube slide is a portal to happiness.

For Your Safety…

  • Children must be supervised by a responsible adult at all times.
  • Be aware that some surfaces may be hot.
  • Play at your own risk.
  • Be kind and play nicely together. No rough play.
  • Any person violating rules may be required to leave The Nest area.
