We’re parents too. We know what shopping with little ones can be like, so we’re happy to provide family-friendly services for you and your kids.
Loading kids and packages isn't always easy, so take advantage of our designated family parking spots. They’re close to entrances and make it easier for expectant mothers and families with small children to visit our shopping center.
Family parking is available at most ground floor entrances.
Head to the children's Play Space and let your little ones have a ball while you keep a close eye on the action. Kids can climb and explore the bright, colorful area filled with oversized play elements, large puzzles, and plenty of space to stretch those active little legs, as well as their imagination.
Children are required to be supervised by an adult at all times. Children must be shorter than 42 inches to play in the Play Space. No food or drinks allowed. Children must remove shoes before playing. Please park all strollers in Stroller Parking.
The Hawthorn Play Space is located by JCPenney, Lower Level.
Looking for a quiet place to relax, recharge, or just catch your breath? The Family Lounge is a comfortable spot where you and your little ones can take a break from shopping. This special area for families, private nursing areas, and baby changing stations.
The Family Lounge is located by JCPenney, Lower Level.
