A 15,000sqft children's adventure playground is slated to open at Speedway & Swan in Central Tucson this fall!
Wild Katz will "promote active lifestyles where kids can show their wild side, exercise, celebrate special events, and go from one adventure to the next. The excitement will be endless, whether your child is a climber, warrior, jumper, or slider!"
Parents can choose to join in on the adventure with their children or to watch from one of the parent seating areas while they enjoy a snack from the old fashioned soda bar.
The soda bar/ice cream shoppe will be called The Fountain and will serve flavored sodas, coffee, and ice cream.
Tentatively scheduled to open in late October or early November, the playground is designed for ages 6 months to 13 years, but equipment will be made to support all ages.
The business owner behind Wild Katz is the mother of four young children. Last summer, Jenni Gardner visited an indoor park with a similar concept in another city and "just couldn't stop thinking about how badly Tucson needed more indoor areas for children to play."
Watch for a full feature on Wild Katz as the opening date nears.
