Our 4500 square foot facility is a fun, clean, safe family environment that offers open play to children under 10 years old, as well as a variety of therapeutic services. Our adaptive play equipment has all of the hands-on features every child needs to strengthen their coordination, fine motor skills, balance, social skills, and other areas of childhood development. This type of play and interaction helps build upon a child’s willingness to learn new things, meet new people, explore new, unfamiliar environments, and generally have greater self confidence in the larger world around them.


Kids Play Gym is geared towards families and kids age 10 and under, providing a safe, sensory-friendly, and inclusive play environment intended to benefit and empower ALL kids and families.


We provide Recreational Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, and ABA Therapy, as well as short-term childcare, open play, and resource events.
