When Melinda—owner of Three Bears Acres—looks back on her own childhood, she remembers a time of carefree joy. She recalls running off into the woods with friends after breakfast, hunting for salamanders and building forts, and returning home only when hunger called her. As a mother of three, Melinda found that same sense of play and freedom to be missing from her children's tightly scheduled lives. She wanted to make a place for kids and their families to celebrate activities with similar freedoms.
The result is Three Bears Acres, which is part educational field trips, part massive playground. The playground consists of more than just towers, slides, bridges with troll tolls, and tunnels. Kids cook up anything they can imagine in the Mud Kitchen. They blast each other with water guns in the shaded Water Wars arena, or try their hand as street artists on the Grafitti Wall. Parents can enjoy these activities too, and Melinda says the most rewarding part of her job is "seeing children and parents happy."
