Where else can you ride ponies and pet exotic animals for free? Kinderplatz is full of children’s activities, so many that it should wear them outso you can get that much needed break later! In addition to the petting zoo and pony rides, they can bounce their way through the Bounce House and obstacle course and then sit down and make a fun craft to take home!

Crafts and activities are hosted by area churches, businesses, school PTO and PTAs, daycares and non-profit organizations.
