Directions

Play time soon! Just as soon as you arrive at 530 Portland St, Dartmouth. It's just off Highway 111, opposite the Penhorn Plaza. You can access it from Portland Street or Green Lane.

Where are we going today?

Oooh lets play on the speed slide! No wait....the spiral slide!  No wait....the cargo bridge!  Oh, we can't decide!

The Play Box is a fun, interactive and colorful play experience for kids up to 12 years old.

There are soft and cushy punching bags for those future Mohammad Ali's out there, a tricky maze (see if you can find your way out!), a craaaaazzzzzy ball jam, a fun slippery spiral slide, a fast speed slide, and can you guess what the moon walk is?  

For those toddlers who need a break from the big kids, there is a dedicated area just for them, filled with brightly colored rockers and fun soft toys to use all that energy on!

Don't worry parents - you can sit back and enjoy a delicious coffee and free wifi while you watch your kids have a great time!

The Play Box ensures a safe, fun environment for your kids to play in, and devlop their creativity, imagination, and keep them active.  It's also a great way to develop their coordination and balance skills. 

If they really love it so much and think their friends will too, then holding their birthday party there is an option.

The Play Box is great for kids physical activity, socialising with other kids and coordination and balance. There are also some kids books available if they want a quiet moment to read, or be read to, before getting back out to play!.

I'm Hungry!

There is a cafe onsite which can sell you a delicious range of espressos and teas, as well as lovely cold drinks, yummy snacks and light meals. They also offer a delicious children’s box, which is always popular! Gotta keep that energy up to keep bouncing!.

Healthy Eating!

There are healthy soy milk and snacks available such as fruit..

Any Top Tips?

Don’t forget to bring your socks! Also, every adult is completely welcome to go on the play structures with their children so don't forget your socks too!.

Need a little extra help?

There is access for wheelchairs, but the actual play structures would be difficult for anyone with limited mobility unless they were toddlers. The washrooms have disabled access.

Baby Facilities

The washrooms there have baby changing facilities. .

Can I get one of those?

There are fun items available that kids will love!.

The family who own The Play Box are very friendly and easy going. I highly recommend giving this place a go, you'll be coming back again guaranteed.
