In this Houston field trip, little kids can search for fairies along a Fairy Trail... and learn about recycling, volunteerism, community, healthy eating, waste prevention, native plants and wildlife and care for our environment.
Many of our field trips are for bigger kids... but the Fairy Trail is perfect for preschool and lower elementary aged kids. (But I am certain some bigger kids would also enjoy the hunt for fairies!)

Explore the Fairy Trail:
Search for fairies along the shaded trails of Stevenson Park!
When you arrive at Stevenson Park, find the Fairy Door and a map of the Fairy Trail. Then follow the the path and look high and low for fairy houses.
At each house, you can open the door and use the map (or website) to learn about each fairy.
Each of the fairies/trolls are diverse in looks and have jobs in the park such as: recycling, volunteerism, community, healthy eating, waste prevention, native plants and wildlife, litter prevention and care for our environment.
The trail is one mile so it is perfect for little feet.
After your walk down the trail, stay to play at the playground. Stevenson Park is a great park!
Drive/Park at Stevenson Park Fairy Trail:
Stevenson Park has lots of free parking surrounding the park. The main fairy gate is on the City Hall side of the park... but you can park anywhere and get there easily. The walking trail is one mile.
