Gumnut Grove – Bay Area Discovery Museum

Gumnut Grove

Gumnut Grove

Adventure Through the Treetops

Opens Summer 2021

Children experience the wonders of nature as they run, play and climb through 3 large treehouses nestled in the canopy of Fort Baker's majestic trees.

Modelled after gumnuts, the seed pods of a Eucalyptus tree, these unique play structures will spark your child's imagination and provide opportunities for adventurous play and age-appropriate risk taking. This space was specially designed for our 5 - 10 year old visitors.

Let the adventure begin!


Play with Nature 

Send a real gumnut up a conveyor belt from the ground up into one of the treehouses. Collect the gumnuts and sort them into bins, then, use a gumnut crusher to split the seeds and see what's inside.


Reach New Heights

Your child can climb up a netted ladder to ascend into the treetops and access the gumnut treehouses – and some of the best views in the Bay Area.


Exciting Exits

Your child will take risks and try something new as they play in this safe, elevated space. Their reward – sliding down from the gumnut treehouses on a giant slide.
