Wesley’s playground is another great indoor play area for kids in DFW!

Address: 185 S White Chapel Blvd. Southlake, TX

Bright, open and spacious, Wesley’s playground is perfect for kids ages 11 and younger. It’s worth stopping in here on a hot day, rainy day, or just for fun.

This indoor playground is located just inside the impressively large White’s Chapel Church, in a window-lined room towards the front of the building. Its full of sunlight and softly padded climbing apparatus. It’s a simple set up, but kids love it!

There’s plenty of space for running and kids enjoy being able to look down from the tunnels up above. There’s also some fun obstacles for them to climb through and a couple of slides as well. One thing that’s nice about this play structure is that parents can easily climb up to help a child if needed.

For babies two and under, there’s a separate area just for them! It’s off to the side of the main kids play area and full of padded flooring. This area also has some low, climbable structures for play. If you have multiple babies with you, they are able to climb out of this area and try to go over to the bigger-kid side. If it’s not too crowded, this is manageable, but it’s less so when there are lots of bigger kids running around.

Parents and caregivers can sit and relax on the bench seating while watching your kids run and play. Plus, you can easily pick up a coffee at the shop just outside the playground!

Note: If you’re there during the Christmas holiday season, just outside the play area is an amazing miniature train set (complete with town scenes, christmas lights, tunnels, etc.). It’s an absolute must-see during the month of December! Plus, it’s free!

Parking: This is a large church, but there are lots of signs to point you in the right direction. If you come to the front entrance (185 S. White Chapel Blvd.) the playroom will be on the LEFT hand side of the church’s main front doors. There is a large, white Jesus fountain marking the main entrance (you can’t miss it), and easiest parking lot to get to is to the RIGHT. There’s a set of glass doors to the left of the fountain (not the wooden main doors), and this entrance is called “The Commons”, where the playroom is located. It can be a little tricky the first time you come to find this play area, but no too hard! Hopefully these directions will help! There’s staff around too who’d be willing to help and signs throughout too.
Restrooms: Just outside the playroom!
