Gardens of Islam: Eucalyptus Forest

Today we visited a eucalyptus forest in the middle of a busy city.  We have seen gardens in urban cities before but we were surprised to find an entire forest.  There were some pine and acacia trees as well and firm dirt paths throughout.

We found wildlife:

This forest we not overly manicured like a garden would be so some fallen branches made nice toys: 

We also found a lovely play area:

My son mounted a large hill of boulders before a gardener stopped him:

We enjoyed visiting this urban forest and we hope to come back some time soon.

Please share your ideas for teaching Muslim children about the natural world.
