Hawks Hollow is open to the public during regular park hours, from dawn until dusk. Hawks Hollows aims to get children using their imaginations and senses to experience the smells, textures and wonders of the natural world.

With a focus on local plants and wildlife, these learning stations aim to inspire children to explore further on and off the nature playground, nurturing a life-long connection to their environment.
Some of the learning stations include:
