City Kids: Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex


City Kids is written by Takoma, DC resident Caroline. Caroline previously wrote about the Boogie Babes at Union Market.

This extra cold winter has made for some desperate times in many toddler households. It’s too cold to go to the park, you’ve been to the library and museums umpteen times, and you’ve walked all the corridors of the area malls. We recently visited the Prince George’s Sports and Learning Complex and ran, bounced, and slid to our hearts’ content. On our visit, we only sampled the gymnastics center, though there is also a pool with waterslides and other children’s activities (in addition to scores of adult activities).

The gymnastics center was enchanting even for the adults. The floor was padded, and large areas were all trampoline. There were trapezes, rings, balance beams, and rope swings that all dropped into a large foam pit. Other areas had gymnastics competition equipment, rope climbing nets, and a foam block obstacle course. After the hour-long open play time, we had lunch at the cafe in the complex.

  • This looks awesome, but I’m having trouble finding more info about it on the website. Do you know if there are age limits, etc? Or, better yet, if this particular event has a webpage? Thanks!

    • Are you asking if adults can play on this? Cause I was wondering the same thing. 🙂

      • I can’t speak to the PG Sports & Learning Complex, but many facilities do not offer adult classes because of increased insurance rates. A few that I know of that do have adult classes: the Trapeze School in Yards Park offers adult trampoline (in addition to trapeze, silks, and other circus arts); Preston Gymnastics in Gaithersburg has adult gymnastics and adult trampoline & tumbling classes; Arlington YMCA has adult open gymnastics; Dynamite Gymnastics in Rockville/North Bethesda has an extensive collection of adult classes.

      • I jumped on the trampoline with my little one with no problem! I would have totally jumped into the foam pit if not for being giant and pregnant 😉

    • There isn’t much info on the website, I know. And I don’t know about age limits; there were both school-age and preschool kids there on a school day, including a daycare group of some kind. Staff was friendly when I called to ask about hours.

  • Keep these posts coming! I’m learning so much about fun options for kids in the area!

  • Holy cow. I wish we had somethign like this in DC.

    • Ditto.

    • it isnt that far outside of the city lol

      yaul act like MD is some far land that will take days to get to
      also if you are willing to walk to a skins game from the metro this is just as much so in walking distance
      or busses will get you closer

      • With a car this isn’t too far away, but I don’t have a car, so I just checked public transportation options. For me it would take an hour and a half to get there taking metro, riding a bus, and walking about half a mile (no idea about sidewalks). With a little kid that’s a long way to go, then play, then an hour and a half back. I’m happy about the review just to know about things in the area, but I agree with the people who wish there were options like this in the city.

  • Can a slightly inebriated 32 year old go to this? I want to jump around and play.

  • This looks awesome! Can’t wait to take my little one
