Took my 7 year old granddaughter. She loved the variety of experiences. The slime making session was her favorite. There was a large variety of activities for ages toddler to 12 yr olds.

This was the second visit for my bigger kids (5&8) but the first visit for my 9mo. It was so nice to visit a place that interested all of them for the whole day. My infant absolutely loved playing with other babies in the infants-only area, and I loved that its centrally located so I could keep an eye on the bigger kids. It is so nice to have a place where crawlers can play and not get stepped on. Since there are picnic areas inside and out, I was able to easily stay all day with the kids. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Facility was nice and clean. Highly recommend!
We always try getting the kids in here when we're in town! We easily spend a couple hrs here. Lots to do with fun outdoor activities too!
If I could give it 10 stars I would. Went the first time and bought a pass the second time because I knew we’d want to come back very frequently. We don’t live too far from it and they have all the toys I wish we had at home but don’t have the space for. Staff is very nice and facility is very clean. There is a toddler sized toilet in the bathroom for those learning to potty train. This is one of the best additions to our Topeka community. I do wish they were open on Monday and Tuesday so we could have fun any day of the week, but I understand why they aren’t. Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My kids love this place. They could play here for hours. Even my teenagers had a blast.
It was a great day inside and out of the Center. I strongly recommend taking your children or Grandchildren. Lots of hands on things to play with inside, and trails and activities to have fun with outside. We were there from 1-4pm and no one got bored. We took our 26 year old Son with Downs Syndrome, and our 5 year old Grandson, they both enjoyed every minute. When we left we went right over to the park area and spent another 2 hours just playing and enjoying our day. Take a cooler and blanket, have a picnic and relax it's a very pretty park.
