New Indoor Playground Opens at Woodlands Church
altPrepare to be amazed! Woodlands Church has recently unveiled a phenomenal new play structure at their main campus. You have questions - we have answers! Is it free? What days and times is it open? What ages are appropriate? Where do you park? Do you need to be a member of the church? Can kids go barefoot?

The great news is that the new play structure is free, open to the public, indoors, has a flexible schedule and is appropriate for babies up to 12 years old! The play structure is truly gigantic, built across two floors of the church atrium. The structure boundary is a knotless netting made from high-tenacity polypropylene and is the standard for children's play areas and many other uses. A commercial company cleans and inspects the entire structure weekly.
 
On the first level surrounding the structure you'll find the WC Trading Co. retail store and cafe. Closest to the cafe you'll find the toddler area (up to age 4), featuring soft foam blocks, small slides, climbing tunnels and low levels for climbing. Next to the railed entrance is parking for strollers and shoe storage.
 
For kids ages 5-12, the multi-story play structure can be accessed from the first or second floor. Shoe storage is close to the base of the yellow winding slide. There is more than enough room for older kids to crawl around, slide, swing, and balance across multiple levels. The part of the structure on the second floor is not self-contained (meaning slides exit onto the landing and kids can re-enter the structure), so if you have adventurous kids they may wander outside of the structure and onto the second floor landing/sitting area. What does this mean for parents? If you were expecting to relax at one of the cafe's tables and tune-out for a while, you'll likely end up walking up and down stairs to keep an eye on kids (rule #8 from the photos below - mind your kids!). There is not one particular place to anchor yourself to have a perfect sight line of the entire structures - kids may get a bit lost in there. 
 
Important Things to Know About the Play Area:
1. The play area has two sections: one for toddlers only (4 & under) and one for children 5-12 years old.
2. Parents are responsible for the supervision of their children in the play area at all times.
3. No shoes in play area. Socks must be worn at all times while playing.
4. No food or drink is permitted in the play area.
5. Children who are not respectful of others will be asked to leave the play area.
6. The play area is closed during regularly scheduled worship services.

Play Area Hours:

Monday-Friday 8am - 4pm (open to public)
Saturday & Sunday Reserved for Church Use Only

Since we first reported on the new playground, Woodlands Church has made a few additions to help create a better, more convenient experience for families:
1. There are now three locations for storing shoes: in the toddler area, at the first-floor entrance to bigger kids play section, and on the second floor.
2. They have added a kids menu at the Café to provide more food and drink options for families.
3. They are now providing socks for kids who need them for a small fee.
 
For the best place to park during non-service times, enter the campus at Gosling or 242 and follow the signs for the Kids' Ministry parking. From here you are easily led past an outdoor playground, through the classroom hallway to the main play structure. You can also aim for Guest Parking (you'll see a large, central fountain) and enter at the cafe doors for WC Trading Co.
 
Woodlands Church is located at 1 Fellowship Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77384. For general information contact (281) 367-1900 or visit their website.
