Calgary families have a wild new reason to enjoy shopping at Southcentre Mall. The ROAR Play Park, located on the lower level, next to SportChek, was created in partnership with the Calgary Zoo and it shows! This free, unsupervised play space has a zoo theme and lots of interactive components like a crawl-through tunnel, slide and climb-on creatures, iPad game stations, beautiful wall murals, and interactive educational sliding panels. This is a great spot to take a well-deserved time out from your shopping and enjoy watching your kids unwind through play.
Parents sit down and relax as your children play in the Marlborough Mall Amazing Maze. The bright and cheerful play area includes games on the exterior of the maze as well as the maze itself. Kids can run around and burn some energy while mom and dad relax. The Family Park adds function, ambience and a sense of community to the shopping centre. Stop by and take a look, it really is “A-mazing”.
