New Addition to the Boxerwood Play Trail

Ben Eland, our Garden Worker at Boxerwood, had the chance to show his creative chops by developing an idea to bring music to the Play Trail in a natural way.  Ben combined a large hollow log and wooden slats to produce a xylophone for children to make their own tunes on.

The Play Trail at Boxerwood is open for escorted children 7 years of age or younger from dawn to dusk 7 days a week.  Admission is free.
