play. owner Shelley Thomas is invested in creating environmentally safe play places for kids, while also giving their parents and caretakers a place to gather. play. was built with that vision. play.'s structure is built with natural, local, and organic materials, into a space where kids aged 6 or younger could frolic while parents relaxed with other adults. In the 2,600-square-foot space, kids can adventure in play areas and shop at a pretend farmers' market or cavort across a stage in elaborate costumes and props. Tykes who wish to check in with Clifford, Dora the Explorer, or Hamlet can nestle into the reading nook with a favorite book. Beside permanent play spots, constantly evolving interest areas accommodate new attractions, such as a chalk wall and a basketball hoop, that enthrall drop-in visitors and birthday-party guests alike. Along with unstructured play, classes led by experienced educators engage tykes with art activities and interactive projects. During the warmer months, play. also offers summer camps that run for two-week sessions and let children explore and create while accompanied by staff and guest instructors.
The dining room at City Limits Sports Grill is a peaceful retreat from the bustling bowling center just outside, where pins clatter and leagues cheer beneath flat-screen TVs and a colorful wall mural. The grill's menu collects classic American comfort food, such as 13 kinds of grinders, St. Louis–style baby back ribs, and beer-battered fish sandwiches. Pints of beer or root-beer floats poured into frosty mugs help round out each meal. In addition to leagues, City Limits also hosts open bowling, birthday parties, and bowling fundraisers.
