Pinwheel PlayThere’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

  • Hi Gianna,
    Thank you for sharing information about local play areas for children. Have you brought your children to Good Times Park in Eagan? It would be fun for the whole family. Please let me know when you want to stop by and check us out.

    Thanks!

    • Hi Bonnie!
      I don’t believe any of the FFTC team has brought their kids out to Good Times Park yet (although personally, my son has been dying to go for several years now!). We do, however, have the park included in our master Twin Cities Indoor Playground Guide. If you would like us to come out we would be very happy to do so and publish a following write-up.
