Discovery for all ages at the John Deere Pavilion

As the mom of a toddler boy, the John Deere Pavilion has been a local favorite for a while. There are TRACTORS. And a PLAY AREA. And it’s FREE.

It’s the parent-child trifecta.

But we recently had the chance to visit again and check out the Discovery Zone Exhibit.

And now, we have even more reasons to return. It was the perfect place to spend a morning in the Quad Cities.

The new area was totally redesigned to appeal to toddlers to teens. And it’s also easy for parents to get involved, too.

My three-year-old’s favorite stop was the construction station, where he could build a bridge.

And, of course, there were still plenty of tractors and machines for John Deere lovers of all ages.
