'Mighty Jungle Adventure' opening soon at Fort Wayne botanical conservatory

Thursday, January 10, 2013 - 4:16 pm

The Foellinger-Friemann Botanical Conservatory is installing its latest themed garden display. This time, visitors will be taken to the jungle.

Fort Wayne Parks Department employees were hard at work Thursday afternoon installing logs that will be cut to varying lengths for children to step on. The logs will be a part of the new "Mighty Jungle Adventure" garden display which runs Saturday-April 7. They are creating a playground that includes the stepping logs, a horizontal balance log for kids to play on and a bamboo hut. On the far side, behind the hut is a full sized hammock kids and adults can try out during their visit.
