Northtown Mall is Anoka County’s only enclosed shopping venue. While Northtown Mall is one of the few metro area malls that does not have a free play area (they used to, but they got rid of it), what they do have for indoor kids entertainment is kiddie rides near the food court, an arcade, those creepy animal rides that all the malls are getting, and a Sky Zone that is located in a separate building in the same parking lot. Northtown Malls Hours, shown above are subject to change - especially during the Holidays.
