If you’re planning a fall visit to Kent, and want to plan indoor
activities for your kids, the Kent Commons community center is the place
to be! As part of the city’s parks and recreation program, Kent Commons (525 Fourth Ave. N., Kent, WA 98032) has LOTS of programs and activities for kids and adults.
Here are just a few of your choices:
Indoor Park: The Kent Commons Indoor Park is open
9:30 to 11:00 a.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Designed
for children from 10 months to 4 ˝ years of age, the Kent Commons
gymnasium is just like an outdoor park with toys, balls and playground
equipment, but inside to give infants and toddlers a place to play where
it is dry and safe. Parents are required to supervise their children in
the Indoor Park (max. of 3 kids per parent please). There is a $2 cost
per visit + $1 for each additional child. Plan to be in town for more
than a few days? Buy a 10-visit pass for $15. Call 253-856-5000 or visit the Indoor Park online for more details or questions.
Sports and Fitness: If you want to stay active while
in Kent, the Kent Commons community center features
handball/racquetball courts, a fully-equipped conditioning room with
weight machines, treadmills, stair climbers and exercise bikes, a
mini-gym for exercise and dance classes, and a double gym for
volleyball, basketball, etc.
Events and Trade Shows: Kent Commons is a great
venue for local events. For example, the Commons will host a Model Horse
Show Oct. 24-25, a Train Show on Nov. 14, the Greater Seattle Toy Show
on Nov. 21, and the annual Holiday Bazaar on Dec. 4-5! Check the events
calendar for other community center events.
