ACT Programs Indoor Playspace


One of the great pleasures of having children is taking them to the park. Watching your child climb, run, explore, and make new friends is always a joy. Going to the park also provides an opportunity to meet neighborhood parents with children of a similar age. Unfortunately, the benefits of going to the playground ends once the cold weather comes. ACT provides a solution.

During fall and winter, ACT Programs offers the indoor playspace, for children five years old and younger we call it Playstation. Playstation offers the chance to continue the fun experiences of the park indoors in  a warm and spacious gymnasium, complete with child-size equipment that includes slides, balls and places to crawl, all on a safe mat area. Parents or caregivers must accompany and stay with their children at Playstation. Come meet with old and new friends. The Playstation is open Monday through Thursday from noon to 2:30 PM. It is closed Friday and on weekends. Call our office for specific dates and selected holiday closings.

Who: Playspace for children under 5 years old by A.C.T. Programs
What: $6.00 /child with one escort, (Picture ID is required for all adults)
