No age group has been more impacted by the pandemic than children. The Children's Discovery Room allows a safe space for your children to explore and play outside your home. Families will have the ability to rent out individual time slots for the Discovery Room for a socially distant play experience. This unique environment allows for fun educational opportunities by allowing children to use their own curiosity and imagination to interact with their environment.
