It’s a rainy, spring day in Oakville today. What better way to kick of our 101 Things to do in Oakville than with a perfect rainy day activity in Oakville – Indoor Playgrounds for the kiddies.
Pretty well all indoor playgrounds or play centres have very cool, colourful climbing structures with slides, tunnels, tubes and look outs. Some even have more than one or integrated obstacles courses. For toddlers or crawling infants there are separate areas with cushy padded play mats and age appropriate toys. Many indoor playgrounds try to cater to the older kids with rock climbing walls/areas, air hockey tables and video game systems.
Whatever their age, indoor playgrounds in Oakville are a great place for children to burn off some steam, have a birthday party, socialize and play with other kids.
It’s not all about the kids anymore – No longer do parents have to stand for hours or sit on uncomfortable benches and watch their kids play.
Indoor playgrounds are realizing that parents are more likely to keep bringing their kids back if there are amenities for them too. Many of Oakville’s play centres have parent’s lounges with comfy couches and eating areas for parents to socialize while their kids play. Some of the more progressive play centres offer free wireless internet access (wi-fi), flat screen TVs, fresh coffee and healthy snacks.
