10 Indoor Play Areas in Saskatoon

7. Restaurant Play Areas (around Saskatoon)
Some McDonalds and Burger King locations as well a number of family restaurants (Jerry’s for one) have play structures (or toys available) for a little fun out of the home! Grab a coffee or a snack or splash out on a meal and let the kids burn energy somewhere that is not your living room!

9. Gymnastics Drop-in (Marian Gymnastics, Flip Gymnastics, Taiso)
A number of gymnastics clubs in the city offer drop-in times on weekdays when parents can bring kids for a romp, a run, and a jump! Times vary seasonally and not all equipment is available for use, but your kids are sure to love it! See individual webpages for details.
Kids love swimming! And there’s no better time to warm up in a city pool (or hot tub!) than when it’s cold outside! Check out drop-in online for designated parent and tot, family, or public swim times!
