The Children’s Movement Center is a hot spot any time of year. But it was even busier the week of Christmas, during winter break. With children off for the holiday and temperatures in the teens, families headed to the center to burn off some energy. Children filled the activity center to explore inflatable slides, bouncy houses, a zip line, a rock wall, swings, gymnastic mats, an indoor climbing playground with slides and a toddler play area. In addition to the general play activities, the center offers a before and after school program, birthday party packages, a variety of classes, camps and more.
