The Hundred Acre Wood Exhibit,
“Forest Friends” Comes to Lasdon Park
The Hundred Acre Wood Exhibit “Forest Friends,” comes to Lasdon Park, Arboretum, and Veterans Memorial this spring. The new exhibit is scheduled to open Saturday, April 9, and runs select days and times through Sunday, May 29.
Located inside the Conservatory, this presentation walks viewers through a “storybook” fantasy featuring the original characters of A.A. Milne and inspired art of E.H. Shepard. Winnie the Pooh and friends come to life with enchanting visuals that teaches children about the importance of our forests and the inhabitants that live there.
The display features five giant books, over six-feet tall that will present a poetic, animated lesson centered around a character from the classic works. In addition, interactive signage will coordinate with each lesson allowing children and adults a hands-on sensory experience.
Throughout the Conservatory, seasonal flowers, tropical plants, trees and shrubs will accent the exhibit with an explosion of color, texture and fragrance.
Tickets are available online with scheduled viewing times and pricing ranging from $10 to $20. The exhibit is co-produced by The Friends of Lasdon Park & Arboretum and Westchester County Parks. Lasdon Park, Arboretum, and Veterans Memorial is a Westchester County Park on Route 35 in Somers. The GPS address is 2610 Amawalk Road, Katonah, NY 10536.
