Marshfield is home to many wonderful opportunities to get out and explore with the family. One place that is definitely a highlight in the area is Jurustic Park. This outdoor sculpture park is a great place to get out and explore a fantasy world of creatures made out of rusted metal. But if you’re wanting to get out more you can discover more creatures on the Downtown Jurustic Trail which is a self-guided walking tour in downtown Marshfield! 
Another family-friendly adventure you can experience is at the Wildwood Park & Zoo in Marshfield. Since 1937, this zoo has grown to be one of the state’s premiere parks! In the zoo, you can see twin Kodiak bears and even check out the newly expanded Cougar Exhibit! The zoo hours change by season so be sure to check the days and hours before you head to Wildwood here.
