Children (recommended for ages 2 through 9) will love the Playscape, at Steppingstone Park. Hours can be spent with the many attractions this indoor playground has to offer. One room is equipped with LEGO walls and LEGO tables to sit at, another room with a play diner and supermarket, where you will find a shopping cart, play food and many other imaginative ways to explore. There is a space with magnetic puzzle tables and a reading corner for children to enjoy. Residents must present a park card to be admitted into the park (two guests welcome per park card). It is open Monday through Sunday from 8:45 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Reservations are required (or take your chances and come down for first-come, first-served) because there is a limit to how many children can play at one time. An adult must be present with the child(ren) as there are NO drop-offs permitted. Call for more information (516) 487-9228 or to reserve an open play slot. The phone will be answered only when the Playscape is open.
