Guidelines for Groups at Woodland Discovery Playground

All groups of ten or more students visiting the Woodland Discovery Playground must register with the Facilities Manager to receive a group permit (fee information below). All groups must have at least one attending adult for every ten students. These rules apply to school groups, field trips, day care groups, and other groups of 10 or more.

Only children age 12 and under allowed in Woodland Discovery Playground

All group fees help keep the Woodland Discovery Playground and its wildlife well maintained, clean and safe. Shelby Farms Park Conservancy is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

Transportation vehicles for groups will be coordinated by a Park Ranger who will instruct group drivers to a location where they can drop off students in the Playground and park their vehicles. Pick-up for groups will be coordinated through the Park Ranger as well.

The following fees are for playground group visits only. Picnic shelters are available for an additional fee and by rental only.
