About Tony's Place
Tony's Place is an indoor inclusive play area specializing in children with autism and other abilities. However, it is open to all children. The play area started at Northtown Mall, but is expanding to Bursnville Center in September of 2019. The mission of the inclusive play place is to be an accommodating play area that allows children with special needs to maneuver freely in a play place conceptualized for them. The playground incorporates an "environment that is produced with stimulating visual, auditory, tactile, and vestibular play supporting gross motor activities for kids of all abilities" and a "safe play experience that allows for learning, wonderment, and a chill zone for decompression".
The Store There is also a retail portion to Tony's Place. Families can find sensory toys and supplies that may be hard to find locally elsewhere.
