Nice little indoor place for kids to play. Definitely more for 2.5 - 4 year olds. The water table seems to be a favorite activity for most kids that go. They also have a cute little outdoor space in the back.

Upon first seeing this place, you will underestimate all that is actually there. The kids can dress up in a career outfit, build, play with the puppets, see live lizards and bugs, and visit the garden. I absolutely loved that it was free and that...More
