About the Treehouse
This terrific treehouse lets kids explore the forest from a 6-foot-tall lower level and 12-foot tall upper level with a lookout window. The treehouse is a well-shaded spot to observe birds and other wildlife. Explorers can access the levels via a climbing wall, cargo climbing net and stairs, and take a slide back down to the forest floor to relax in a hammock!
Architect and Topeka native Chris Yorke designed this treehouse following his internship with the nation’s top treehouse designer. The treehouse was built with wood from recycled utility poles. The project was built with support from Westar Energy’s Green Team (now Evergy) and craftsmen from Builder Bees. The treehouse opened in September of 2012.
