I don’t know about you, but when we’re stuck inside, I start to go a little stir crazy myself. And so do the kids. Experts say that kids are supposed to get 60 minutes of physical activity every day. In winter with sub-zero temperatures and so much rain, shorter days…60 minutes is hard!
A bunch of local bloggers and myself have compiled lists of indoor playgrounds and play areas. My list is Chester County–from Downingtown and Exton area on down. (Hopefully, this makes sense to you Chesco people!)
Anyway, here is my list, and then you can scroll down to see the other counties that have been covered.
Indoor Play Areas
Here is my portion of the list of indoor play areas and activities near Philadelphia. You can scroll down if this is not the region you’re looking for.
Avondale Indoor Play Areas
Boomers Family Fun Center
on Route 41. Admission is $8 per child, adults are free. That will include the bounce houses and climbing area, video games and food at additional charge. One day a month they do a discount day for preschoolers and they have teen nights.
Unfortunately, Boomers went out of business.
Coatesville Indoor Play Areas
McDonald’s on Lincoln Highway has a small play area for young children–sign says only for toddlers and preschoolers.
Downingtown Indoor Play Areas
There are plenty of activities for toddlers in Downingtown. Older kids too! My son goes to school in Downingtown, and they have weekly outings so I’m familiar with what is there.
- Chick-Fil-A at Ashbridge Square on Route 30
- Urban Air-kind of new, trampolines and ninja warrior courses
- Vertical Extreme– indoor rock climbing, for older kids
- Palace Bowling
- New in Downingtown-the Playdium.
- United Sports Complex-I’ve never been there, but from what I can tell, you have to be a member. However, a membership is only $25-$60 per year, then you pay additionally for activities.
- Bowling Alleys behind the Home Depot.
Exton Indoor Play Areas
Looking for some activities for toddlers in Exton? You’re in luck, there are a few places. And, while it may not be a playground, don’t forget the award-winning Chester County Library. It’s right next to the mall.
- Exton Square Mall has an indoor kids’ play area. It is open during mall hours.
- Chick-Fil-A at Lionsville, Eagleview Blvd.
- Bounce U
