We have lots of toys, activities and places to sit. Kids of all ages (and parents and staff!) like playing with the gel bubbles, car track, and digital fish tank.

One extra fun thing is our waterfall that you can touch. There have even been reports of little break-ins to try to touch the waterfall from the receptionists’ side!

A lot of families come early before their appointment so that they can play in Central Park!

 

Discovery Park is our outside play area.
