Smyrna Outdoor Adventure Center Debuts ‘Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action’

The primary goal of the exhibit is to get kids active by playing and doing things they like to do.

Tennessee State Library & Archives Launches Second Saturday ToursSmyrna families should fly on over to the Smyrna Outdoor Adventure Center's new educational exhibit, Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action, onsite through September 5, 2021.

Run! Jump! Fly! Adventures in Action was developed by the Minnesota Children’s Museum and is designed to encourage children to discover the fun in being physically active in a non-competitive environment. Children have the opportunity to explore activities such as kung-fu, surfing, snowboarding, yoga, and horizontal climbing. 

Featuring the theme of action adventures popular in children’s books and movies, the exhibit invites visitors to jump into “Action Star Training” – play activities that build strength, coordination, balance and endurance. The target audience is children ages 5 – 12, while children 2-5 will be able to enjoy many of the activities. Additionally, the exhibit activities are accessible to visitors with varying physical abilities and developmental needs.

The exhibit and a 40 minute climb time are included with SOAC admission. For additional information, please visit the Town of Smyrna’s website townofsmyrna.org, or call 615-459-9710.
