Free summer fun: Park Collective
June 8, 2022
If you live in or find yourself traveling to Northern Arizona this summer, there is a new and really neat indoor playground you need to check out! The best part? It is FREE of cost!
Park Collective, located in Prescott Valley, has both a toddler area with equipment geared towards our younger kiddos, and a bigger area designed for those older and in for more loud and daring adventures. There is even an indoor zipline that was incredibly popular amongst all ages!
We were greeted kindly by a staff member that asked us if we had any questions. That same staff member was later seen sanitizing all equipment and monitoring the areas for safety.
My 3-year-old and 4-year-old engaged in both parts, and were a little fearful of the indoor zipline at first. However, once my daughter Olivia (4) decided to give it a try, she was hooked!
In the toddler section, parents of babies and toddlers were seen engaging in computer work while sitting on the turf as their littles explored at arms length. Olivia (4) and Logan (3) enjoyed creating homes and statues out of giant, soft building blocks. This section had smaller equipment geared towards exploring babies and toddlers.
Along with the zipline, the older section consisted of climbing ropes, tunnels, and slides! We spent the majority of the time in this section. The ages here ranged all the way up to teenagers. This area was surrounded by lime green beach chairs and benches for parents and guardians to sit back and relax while keeping an eye on their children.
Park Collective certainly keeps the entire family in mind, providing ample seating areas with free WIFI and a coffee shop. The inside of the building has just the perfect temperature and atmosphere for the entire family.
Overall, Park Collective was definitely worth our time and a great option for those living or headed to the northern part of Arizona!
