An interactive children’s play area will be part of Cascades Park when it opens next spring. On Monday, the city of Tallahassee announced the play area will be called Discovery, and it will be entirely funded by private donors.

The Discovery area is to include climbing logs, a butterfly garden and an outdoor classroom. Tallahassee City Commissioner Gil Ziffer says Discovery is designed to encourage imaginative and active play.

“Kids like to learn, they like to have fun, and if we can sneak some exercise in there, all the better," he says.
