New Albany Parks and Recreation has just opened their new indoor playroom designed for children ages 5 and younger. My two-year old daughter and I went to their grand opening celebration where Rainbow Puppets performed a great puppet show that captured the attention of the little ones. They also celebrated the opening by offering snacks and even had a book giveaway for each child as they left.

All of their equipment and toys are brand new. In the gymnasium, there was lots of space to run and they had lots of ride-on toys, a jumpy castle, tunnels, blocks, cars, hula-hoops and more. Inside the Wiggles & Giggles carpeted playroom, there were lots of imaginative play toys, a small climbing frame, books, a felt board, chalkboard and lots of foam-shape climbers.

My little one had a great time and cried when we had to leave. My 4-year-old son is requesting to go now, so we will be heading back soon!

It’s located inside the Griffin Recreation Center at 1140 Griffin Street, New Albany.  It’s a 5-minute drive off of the 64 bridge. Both areas are unsupervised and you are responsible for your children.

Oh, did I mention this is FREE?!   

The New Albany Parks & Recreation Department has a lot happening right now. Head over to their website to see it all-Mommy & Me fitness classes, kids art and nature classes, splash pads and pools! For more information, call 812-949-PARK.
