Dotson Back Forty

The Dotson Back Forty has the overgrown and brushy feel of a field that adults have forgotten and children have made their own. All the elements for nature play are there: tree stumps and hollows, arching branches, water to pump, and knolls to climb and roll down. This area will be rich with sticks, stones, leaves, nuts, bark, and seeds that inspire building, design, and stories. With a natural-looking wall surrounding the area, edible plants growing throughout, and water produced by children activating a hand pump, the Dotson Back Forty offers fenced-in freedom.
