The Ark @SPARC
This will include a Soft Play Activity room for children up to the age of 11 years called The Ark. This will be a multi-level area with slides, ball pool, bish bash and lots more – there will be an integrated but enclosed area just for babies and toddlers. It looks like it will be LOTS of fun!!
There will be a café area where you will be able to supervise your children whilst sipping on your coffee and enjoying our freshly made cakes and snacks, and party rooms to hold children’s birthday parties.
