Little Land Play Gym and Pediatric Therapy
The play equipment at Little Land Play Gym was designed by pediatric therapists to be fun and growth promoting. Parents can take comfort that their children are playing, developing, and growing in a setting that’s just as enjoyable for adults! Drop in to play, enjoy a class or drop off the kids on a Friday Night and get the night to yourself.
Kids will play for hours in the giant ball pit, the two-story curly slide, a super cool rope climbing tunnel and the jumbo bouncer equipped with a basketball net for “kid-friendly” dunking. They’ll pow wow in the COOP tee pee, or play the day away on the electronic gaming floor. Parents can enjoy free WiFi, an espresso bar, great magazines and stress-free birthday parties.
