They can prepare fresh food in the Rainbow Bistro, plant and harvest veggies and fruits, and sell them in the Fresh Produce Farm stand. The Play Well giant Carrot Climber will delight visitors as they actively move and climb, going higher and higher. There are challenges waiting to be discovered that will keep minds and bodies fit in the Backyard Challenges. Visitors will find ways to Stay Well and learn about their bodies in the Well Check Clinic. As a cMoe Roving Reporter in the Be Well WBWL TV studio, visitors can broadcast health news in their choice of six scenes showing different ways to be healthy. SunSmart offers many ways to discover the importance of playing it safe in the sun while having fun outside. The wide range of experiences in this new gallery are sure to impact the health of visitors and the community while exploring how to Live Well.
