Fox Hollow Opens
February 16, 2013Fox Hollow opens to the public on Saturday, February 16.
After two years of planning, designing, fundraising, and building, Fox Hollow is ready to open! You've seen pictures, and you've seen us working through the fence, now experience our brand new exhibit gallery in person!
Our Town Square is filled with friendly faces and interactive environments. There is a one-of-a-kind kinetic sculpture in the center where guests can interact with cranks to move heavy balls through a series of ramps, spirals, twists, and turns. Stores include Mei's Shoes, Sal's Pizza Parlor, and Harvest Market. Services include a Post Office, a Vet Clinic, and a Fire Department. If the alarm sign is flashing and the nearby building is on fire, what happens when you point the hose at it? Can you make a pizza half mushroom and half peppers? Anyone want ice cream?
Past the Town Square is Farmer George's farm filled with fresh produce including peppers, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, apples, pears, and of course corn! Take care of the animals in the barn and play around in the treehouse. Can you figure out how to get the corn from the combine to the corn factory to the market?
Also, please take a moment to visit the PlayHouse where we have a new ABC Animal Mural painted by Susan D. Holgersson. Can you find one animal for each letter of the alphabet?
And please remember to visit our donor tree located on the side of Farmer George's barn. The apples and leaves show how many businesses, people, and organizations that it took to complete this renovation. It takes a lot of people to build a town, even when it's kid-sized. Thank you for your support!
