Arroyo Adventure | Kidspace Museum



Arroyo Adventure

Centered around the Interpretive Arroyo, where children can splash and play in a miniature version of Pasadena’s own Arroyo Seco, Arroyo Adventure features experiences that encourage children to connect with nature. Guests are able to climb their way up to the giant Hawk’s Nest where they can let their imaginations soar as they look out over the trees. Children can explore the properties of mud and try their hand at brickmaking in Mud & Clay. Flood & Erosion Plain is an opportunity for children to investigate the effects of erosion by making channels through sand, building small dams, and using rocks to control the flow of water. Other exhibits include Hidden Forts, Pepper Tree Music Jam, Harvest Corner, and more!
