Patapsco Valley State Park

​Hilton Area Playground and Nature Center

The tire playground at the Hilton Area of Patapsco Valley State ParkThe Hilton Area is a cool place for families. There is a recycled 2-acre tire playground for children 5-12 years of age and our nature center is located in this area, too. Though small in size, our nature center is the hub for exploration.

Our seasonal interpretive programs meet at the nature center, offering activities for our young park visitors. Programs like Junior Rangers and Little Sprouts are available to peak a future ranger’s curiosity. (Check out the Patapsco program schedule for the current schedule of interpretive programs in the park.)
