EPC Kids – EPIC Events for EPIC Kids

In the fall of 2022, the mall introduced the EPC Kids program, which includes a variety of activities (both free and paid) on Monday through Thursday mornings, including Mommy and Me Classes at Hi-Five Sports Zone (for toddlers and parents), one-time events and special kids meal deals. EPC recommends visiting Choo Choo Express, Safari Animals and the Playland Arcade during these visits.

Children’s Play Area at Eden Prairie Center

The Children’s Play Area was updated and relocated in the fall of 2015 and can be found in the lower level of Kohl’s Wing of the mall. The area is almost 2,000 square feet with soft, colorful structures in a “Minnesota Outdoors” theme. Small kids (42 inches or less) can climb and explore this free area any time during mall hours. There are also coin-operated rides just outside the play area. Parents will be happy to know that the mall offers free wi-fi and seating around the play area. The area also offers stroller parking and is situated among child-friendly retailers. As with most play areas, socks are required.

“Some malls are doing away with play areas,” said Eden Prairie Center Marketing Manager Shannon Rasmussen. “For us, family is our core, and it’s who we aim to serve. Therefore, we want to ensure we have the amenities that families are looking for when choosing where to shop.”

Family Restrooms at Eden Prairie Center

Family restrooms can be found in the Food Court. Proving their commitment to families, this restroom offers toddler-sized fixtures, private nursing rooms, a diaper-changing station, and a family lounge. The downside is that the family restrooms and food court are on the second level while the play area is on the first level.
