Indoor play areas in the area.
Jan 02, 2014
Ugh, it’s cold outside. If you have kids or are babysitting someone’s child it’s a real pain in the winter. If you can’t play at a neighborhood park how do those little ones get all that energy out? We have a few ideas of places to visit around the neighborhood. Some are cheap, some are free and some you’ll have to pay for.
YMCA (225 Atlantic)- The monthly fee is definitely an investment but with weekly activities for kids, including an indoor play area set up in the giant gym where kids can run around as much as they want called Toddler Time for no additional charge, and a free childwatch room so that parents can exercise while their kids play with a bunch of toys. It’s worth it.
Moxie Spot (81 Atlantic)- Restaurant with decentish food and a great play area. Gets crowded at times.
Powerplay (432 3rd Ave)- This indoor playground (pictured above and below) is $10 per kid per visit. You don’t have to be a member. It’s a good sized space. Not crazy about the sandbox portion.
Carroll Gardens Library (396 Clinton)- Not a lot of toys but they do have a lot of weekly events and a nice carpeted area for reading and toddling around. And free!!
Kidville (380 Court)-Most expensive on the list because you have to first sign up for a class and only then are you allowed to pay more to become a member and use their indoor play area. Nice space though.
Families First Brooklyn (250 Baltic)- They have a small indoor play area and charge a yearly membership fee of $275.
