Whether you live in The Woodlands area or are visiting The Woodlands, you should definitely visit The Woodlands Church play place! This is a great place to bring children who need to get some energy out. Your kids will absolutely love this huge indoor play place! Oh, and did I mention The Woodlands Church play place is free? Yup, free!
The Woodlands Church play place is located at 1 Fellowship Drive, The Woodlands, TX 77384. Note that there is a small chapel closer to Gosling and this is NOT where the play place is located. It is located in the main campus by the cafe and bookstore. You can enter through the doors by the fountain and outdoor cafe tables.
I love to bring my kids here. It gets so hot here in Texas and I love that I can take my toddlers here to get some of their energy out during the week, especially during the summer. It is a wonderful free activity.
Again, The Woodlands Church play place is completely free! The play place is open to toddlers all the way up to age 12. There are two different sections to The Woodlands Church play place. The first section is for small toddlers and the second is for bigger kids.
Big Kids Section
The second section for the bigger kids goes up several floors with eight different levels! It’s huge!
This momma loves her coffee and they have a coffee shop! You can easily order a latte and sip on it while your kids play. Their coffee is imported from Haiti and is fair trade. If I remember correctly, it specifically supports people in Haiti and ministries there. They also have yummy cookies and baked goods (selections rotate throughout the week). They also serve smoothies, hot chocolate, as well as sandwiches and other items for lunch.
No purchase from their cafe is necessary to play in their play place but it’s there if you want to use it. They also have a ton of tables, high chairs, and booster seats if you need to stop and take snack break or eat lunch.
Fair Trade & Book Store
I absolutely LOVE their fair trade / book store. It is right next to the play ground. Be sure to take a browse for great toys, books, jewelry, coffee, decor, dishes, and more! The store is meant to break the cycle of poverty and empower those who need a job, all around the world. You can read about who makes what you’re buying as you browse the store. You’ll be shopping for such a good cause if you choose to buy anything. I highly recommend taking at least a quick browse through, especially since it’s for such a good cause. I personally love to buy Christmas gifts from their store.
