Open 7 days a week with something for all ages Funhaven is the fun place to be in Ottawa! With an indoor playground and jungle gym geared towards children ages 3-12, bumper cars, and an indoor roller coaster (the only one in Ottawa!), arcade and escape rooms… there is hours and hours of fun to be had. Just off the highway, next to Ikea, this indoor playground is easy to get to from all areas of the city. Funhaven offers options for families to drop in or you can pre-book for birthday parties and special events.

Flying Squirrel

If you have a child who loves to jump, head to Flying Squirrel for hours of jumping fun! You will need to purchase a pair of grip socks (if you don’t already own some) and unlock hours of entertainment. Also available is an adventure playground, ropes course, and climbing walls. Jumping fun for little and big kids (even the adults!) means that this is a great place for the whole family to enjoy.

Cosmic Adventures

A true staple in the Ottawa community when it comes to indoor play spaces Cosmic Adventures has 2 play spaces in one. Head to the upstairs area with your younger toddlers and infants with lots of room for them to crawl, walk and play. Or stay in the main area to explore all the climbing, slides, bouncing and exploring that Cosmic Adventures has to offer. Located in the east end on Ogilvie, you can easily spend a full day here having fun!

Starr Gymnastics

With drop in play gym times at all 3 Starr locations across Ottawa (Lancaster Rd., Morrison Dr., and Lacolle Way) you will love exploring with your child as they play on the ropes, trampolines, obstacles, and more! Starr Gymastics has Baby Drop In times for ages 0-12 as well as Drop In Play Time for ages 1-5.

Kids Kingdom

With 2 locations across Ottawa you can head east (Orleans) or west (Kanata) for hours of indoor play. Each location offers a large play space to climb, jump, slide and laugh but with slightly different hours check the website before heading over for a play.  The castle-themed structure feels special and magical for kids of all ages. With a separate play area for infants, you can choose your play spot that is best suited to your child’s age and needs.
