After blogging about indoor playgrounds for more than 3 years, the sound of ‘new playground’ sets my heart racing, fingers typing and stroller wheels rolling. Oh wait, it’s not open yet. *puts my stroller back* So all I have now is the address.
City Square Mall
180 Kitchener Road
Woah.. Petite Park, beware. Competition’s coming right to your doorstep!
Update (23 Jan 2015): They have a Facebook Page! It looks pretty much work-in-progress, all renovation photos for now. You can follow it if you wish to receive first-hand news when they open.
From the looks of it, their mascot is a Panda and the playground is going to have a Pandaish-bambooish theme. The focus seems to be active play, so probably more suitable for older kids rather babies and toddlers. WHICH IS CLEVER because it means they are not in direct competition to their neighbour, Petite Park.
Received email from their manager letting me know about what they offer:
(Words in blue are my own added opinion.)
They have 2 party rooms. They are divided by a door in between. Estimated the rooms are suitable for 15-20 and 10 children (with their parents). (Doesn’t sound very big, probably for small cozy parties.)
The smaller room has an interactive projector which is installed with some simple games.
Youtube video of example:
(Great! Something we don’t see often. Though I think Polliwogs at East Coast Park has a play pad that works something like that? Maybe theirs will be higher resolution?)
Play structure is mainly catered for 2-10years old. (Yay! My kids are in that age range!) It will contain
-Ball Pit (which playground doesn’t?)
-Air cannon/blaster (no longer a fad)
-Slide (there better be at least one)
-Trampoline (my jumpy kids will love this)
-etc. (that’s it??)
They will also have a nursing room. (AWESOME!)
