A Mama Oasis in the Frozen Chill of WinterSuper chilly temps plus a Frozen style sprinkling of glittery ice over the last couple of weeks, have left these mamas with a group of sugarpies who are itching for some freedom to run and play. What's a mama to do? Especially mamas who are doing their best to stay on budget and tackle debt in 2015?
Chick-fil-a? Nope. Skyzone? Nope. Saving our pennies. Think, think, think as Winnie the Pooh would say. Eureka! BRCC Playland in New Palestine, Indiana. Just minutes from our lovely Fortville and conveniently located just off US 52! And best of all, it's FREE!
Open Monday-Thursday, 9a.m. - 5p.m. and Fridays, 9a.m. - noon, it's a perfect low cost getaway for a mama (or mamas) and her kiddos! We have to commend Brookville Road Christian Church. The space is oh so inviting. Truly a lovely ministry that they provide to all, no matter whether you go to BRCC or not. I wish more churches reached out in this manner. It's genius!
When you walk in you are welcomed into a large open cozy space, a cross between a lodge and a Tuscan open outdoor living space. There is a huge stone fireplace and lots of tables, both high and low, to sit and enjoy a little packed lunch or snack before or after playing.
The indoor playland has lots to enjoy. Our kiddos favorite was definitely the roller slide. Seats for mamas, lots of natural light streaming in and lots to keep all the little ones busy. There is even a gated in area with large foam obstacle pieces for the littlest of the bunch to enjoy safely.
During our visit, it was fun to sit and chat with each other while the Fortville Mama kiddos let their imaginations run wild with all sorts of creative games to play with new found friends in the playland. We stayed for about an hour and a half. Plenty of time for lots of fun, good conversation and worn out sugarpies.
