A day spent indoors can still be active if you head to an indoor playground. These play centres in North York have slides, bouncers, and climbers. Some have toddler-friendly play areas and, for older kids, arcade games and even a pottery studio.
All the centres here have drop-in play, but hours may be limited to certain days or times of day—and they may be closed at certain times or on certain days for birthday parties. Call ahead to avoid disappointment.
