We were sad to learn that Pinwheel Play closed permanently during the summer of 2020.
There’s a new play space in town! Located off of Highway 5 in Chanhassen, Pinwheel Play is an incredibly fun modern destination.
Pinwheel Play let us check out their space for free. All opinions are mine.
Lisa Perkins Smith, with her husband Bryon, opened Pinwheel Play because they couldn’t find a play space that fit their needs. They wanted a place that was clean, welcoming and catered to many types of open-ended play for the younger set.
It was hard to whittle this list down to 10 things; I was very impressed with this well-planned space.
1. 5000 square feet of play space
2. Art Room with a project of the week
3. Active Screen Time Room
4. Active play
5. Climbing structure
6. Books strategically placed throughout facility
More Family Fun
7. Lots of imaginative play options
8. Blocks and other building materials spread out throughout the different rooms.
9. Birthday party space to rent
10. Open 7 days a week, even holidays: 7 am-9 pm.
