Imaginative play and exploration blossom in the natural world of Camden Children's Garden, where families encounter enchanting themed gardens and rides. Inside the four-acre horticultural playground, visitors walk among an imagined version of Ben Franklin's workshop and spot monarchs and black swallows inside the tropical environment of the butterfly house. Outside, an apatosaurus looms over the dinosaur garden, watching as mini archeologists uncover dino bones and the broken lamp he hid from his mother 80 million years ago.
Children stretch their imaginations as they live like their favorite fictional characters in the storybook garden and hunt for faeries in the Irish garden. Grownups can take a break while kids perch on rides such as a biologically diverse carousel that takes little ones up 30 feet and back down. The Arrow River train takes up to 38 children, 22 adults, and one confused buffalo on a 600-foot journey through miniature landscapes and attractions such as the historic Camden Caboose.
Framed by the foul poles, vistas of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and the Philadelphia skyline peer over the outfield at Campbell?s Field, adding a serene backdrop to the action on the diamond below. Home to the Camden Riversharks since their Atlantic League debut in 2001, the family-friendly stadium seats up to 6,425 fans and includes a 5,000-square-foot play area, where tykes can run through an obstacle course, plunge down a giant slide, or enter the speed pitching booth to mimic their favorite cricket bowlers.
Celebrating its 35th anniversary, the Atlantic 10 Conference stimulates collegiate competition between 14 universities. Baseball fans may make their way to any one of the tournament’s four days of competition: watch teams find their footing during session one, see them survive the steady stakes increases of session two and three, or nervously devour a box of Cracker Jack and engagement rings during the championship session four. Each fun pack arrives with an array of goodies to enhance the nine-inning experience, including a ticket to the tournament day of your choice (an $8 value for adults and a $4 value for children, students, or senior citizens), a championship program (a $2 value), an A-10 koozie for cola-can cold-keeping (a $5 value), and an A-10 keychain (a $1 value) designed to fit into most standard sweatshirt hoods.
