Merryspring Nature Center

Last Sunday, the team discovered the ever-so-gorgeous Merryspring Nature Center in Camden.Thanks to our friends, Nate and Mary Larlee, who celebrated their wedding at Merryspring, we were able to spend hours taking in the wildflowers, perennials and fields around the park.

Hydrangeas. A garden gazebo. What’s not to love?

MP fell for the gardens, especially a space designed just for kids. And it was fun to watch her duo, along with other wee wedding guests, launch foam stomp rockets into an open field nearby.

The children’s garden invites kids to explore without limits

CP #2 liked trying out the benches throughout the gardens, while his sister was charmed by a small cottage hidden among the blooms.

The 66-acre, nature preserve also offers easy, family- and pet- friendly walking trails, an arboretum and several shaded spots to enjoy a picnic lunch.

While MP was checking out Merryspring’s web site, she noticed the park also holds some free family activities, including an upcoming Fort Building and Fairy Houses event (September 12) and an Enchanted Forest party, featuring trails aglow with jack ‘o lanterns (Oct. 31).
