Enjoy recreational and educational activities at this award-winning, accessible attraction!

More than 250,000 visitors have explored the LBC since its opening in December 2021!

The LBC is located on the shared campus between MDWFP’s Mississippi Museum of Natural Science (MMNS) and the Mississippi Children’s Museum (MCM) at I-55 and Lakeland Drive in Jackson, Mississippi. 

The LBC includes:

Children who play and learn in nature are more physically active, more engaged in learning, and more emotionally healthy. Outdoor experiences build visual-spatial skills, strengthen observation and creativity, improve concentration, and enhance motor and imagination skills.

Please note:

  • Dogs are not allowed anywhere on the Complex (Playground, The Den, Spotter's Adventure Trail).
  • Service animals are allowed on the Complex.

The Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Mississippi Foundation's generous $4.2 million grant for improving the health and well-being of Mississippians made this innovative project possible and their leadership team played a visionary role in the LBC's development.
