Kingwood Center Gardens

The Library is now partnering with Kingwood Center Gardens to offer free admission with the MRCPL Adventure Pass. Each pass provides admission for 4 people. Children 12 years and under are admitted free. Kingwood Center Garden’s staff will verify the borrower’s photo ID before admitting them to the Gardens. 

The Adventure Pass will be used for general garden admission only and may not be used for special events including Wine Walk, the Great Pumpkin Glow, or Christmas at Kingwood, and any other event days as determined by Kingwood Center Gardens. The Adventure Pass cannot be used on days that Kingwood Center Gardens is closed. 

Storybook Trail

The Storybook Trail is a partnership with the Mansfield Richland County Public Library and was funded by the Keyser Library Fund and the George and Barbara Keyser Donor Advised Fund of Richland County Foundation.

The Storybook Trail is open during garden hours, 10 am to 7 pm, and is located along the Nature Trail that begins at the Peacock Playhouse. The Storybook Trail is ADA compliant.
