Not your everyday children’s playground
Who We Are
We are proud parents of children who love to play, learn and explore. We found a gap in the entertainment industry between huge not for profit museums and the small indoor playgrounds around our area. We created KidSpace from scratch with our own life savings because we believed we could make something better for kids and parents!
