Tides to Trees Climber

The Tides to Trees Climber and main staircase are intertwined, suggesting the pier at low tide adjacent to the waterfront. Kids climb up to the second level, then come swirling down the stream slide or continue climbing to the giant eagle's nest perched more than 20 feet in the air! Barnacles, seaweed, tide pools and plank steps set up the scene for ocean-side play.
