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.
