Explorer Room

The explorer room is a three-story playground full of adventure and excitement for children, ages two to 10.

The room has slides, tunnels, platforms to climb, and obstacles to climb through. It’s perfect for any child to run, climb, and burn off energy. Parents are required to supervise their children at all times.

The explorer room is open to the public, for free, during normal community center hours. It closes a half hour before the community center.


The explorer room is located on the main floor of Matt Ross Community Center, next to the Child Watch office.


The explorer room is available to rent after-hours.
