This is seriously one of the nicest outdoor play areas I have seen at a Westfield mall. The area is a bit hidden but it also means the kids can't get away. I have been to some malls where the play place is next to a busy parking lot. They have a great wall covered in chalkboard paint and chalk out in pails. There are also a couple nice food choices and sitting areas where you can enjoy a meal and let the kids play. The only down side was getting my 3 year old out of the Lily Pads but she sure did love them!
I am not sure what the area that I am reviewing is called, my daughter and all her friends call it the "lily pads" I looked on there website and couldn't find anything. There was a mention of a fun zone, so that might be what it is called. This is located right outside Giggles N Hugs (see review)
The "lily pads" is this amazing structure that looks like art. It is a series of green hard plastic "lily pad" shaped discs that are all at different angles. They go about 2 stories high and are wrapped in a wire mesh so the kids can not fall off. It has 3 "towers" and are all connected like a maze. My daughter and her friend can spend a couple hours easy climbing up and down and across the "lily pads." There is comfortable seating for about 5 people right in front of the structure, which is nice if you are going to be there awhile.
Our visit to the mall usually goes something like this: We start out at Giggles n Hugs for dinner and play time. When the girls have had enough of the play place we head outside to the "lily pads" They burn off even more energy in the fresh night air, then we wrap the evening up with Pinkberry.
If you have kids and you are heading to this mall, it's a must that you stop by the "lily pads" They have so much fun! There is also a couple coin operated ride on toys and on the wall some music makers.
This mall has really good shopping, state of the art movie theaters, amazing restaurants.
