The Health Adventure is proud to unveil a fresh, new look as they move into their new space in Biltmore Square Mall. This summer, The Health Adventure became an official member of the Park Ridge Health family and began renovating its new space.
The new look of The Health Adventure’s logo keeps the iconic “man” and embraces the Park Ridge Health branding elements as well.
“What has emerged is a logo that provides recognition of our previous brand and gives us a fresh update,” stated Paige Wheeler, executive director for The Health Adventure. “We are thrilled to have a new home and a new start with Park Ridge Health as our strategic partner. We believe our visitors will be excited about our new look and home. Our goal is for our visitors to always have great experiences.”
The Health Adventure is currently renovating a 29,934 square foot space inside the Biltmore Square Mall for relocation of the museum for its programs and exhibits. Inside visitors will find an expanded Creative Play Space for younger children that will be 2.5 times larger than their previous space. There will also be larger areas for permanent and traveling exhibits all on one floor. Additionally, more classroom space and even a theater space will offer more room for educational opportunities for all ages.
The Health Adventure will be presenting programs, exhibits, and activities for children, school groups, parents, families and grandparents. “We will be a place for families to enjoy time learning, playing and simply spending time together. We will be The Family Place,” Wheeler said.
The new space will be physically located in the old Goody’s clothing store space and is an easy drive from locations throughout the region. It is easily accessible from I-40, I-240, and I-26 and is at Exit 33 off of I-26 at the exit for the Blue Ridge Parkway.
The new location offers guests more than twice the space as its previous location in Pack Place and will have extended hours into the evening hours. The last day for visitors in the old Health Adventure in downtown will be on Sunday, Oct.9. The museum will then be cleaning and packing its exhibits for its move to Biltmore Square. There will be a week of Grand Opening celebrations held in November with details to be announced soon.
Current memberships will be extended for an additional month to thank members for understanding the need to close for several weeks in order to open the new facility. Information about memberships, admissions fees, programs and exhibits is available at thehealthadventure.org
As a sneak preview, The Health Adventure will open its first traveling exhibit in Biltmore Square Mall in the mall’s center court the weekend of September 24. This preview will be free to the public until The Health Adventure opens its doors in the new space. Additional details on the traveling exhibit will be available at thehealthadventure.org
