Free Indoor Playgrounds in the Indianapolis Area

Cold or wet weather can be a real downer for little ones needing to exhaust their excess energy. When your kids need space to run, jump and climb during uncooperative weather, you might find yourself searching for someplace to take them. Sure, there are good options at local fast food restaurants such as Chick-fil-a and several area malls, but those are designed for smaller children and are small in size.

Have no fear! There is a solution and best of all - it's free! Warm up the mini-van, pack some snacks and make sure the kids have on their socks! These local indoor playgrounds are all free and offer plenty of entertainment for your children - even when it's cold outside.

Be sure to call the facilities ahead of time to ensure availability.
