Play Day is designed for children ages six months to six to use their imaginations while playing. It is a place for birthday parties and play dates, which also allows one of the parents to go shopping while the other stays with their child during play hours.
Each child must be accompanied by a parent on Play Day, open every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. A day pass costs $ 12 per child.
