We’re reviewed Main Street Indoor Park before, but since we’re in the middle of hot wet Houston summer, I’m reviewing it again!

Main Street Indoor Park Puppet Show
The Main Street Indoor Park is part of the First Methodist Downtown Campus and is open to the public, Tuesday through Thursday mornings.  It’s a small indoor playground and is designed for kids 5 and under.  (My older boy has been allowed the visit too, but stayed off the equipment.)

Main Street Indoor Park Shtore Fronts
The little park is one big room, surrounded by several small classrooms.  Each classroom door is decorated like a Main Street storefront and the park is the town center, complete with soft turf, lamp posts and park benches.  It is the cutest little space AND it’s closed off so kids can run off.

Main Street Indoor Park Play Structure and Slide
In the middle of the park is a small play structure that looks like a train!  There are just two small slides, but the train makes it very cool.  Kids can climb in the train, under the train and down the slides.  They can also play in the grass and play hopscotch.

Main Street Indoor Park Hopscotch
The park isn’t huge, but it is very nicely maintained, air conditioned and has bathrooms.  If you have young kids, you should try it out one morning.

Main Street Indoor Park Turf
When you go, pay the meter on the street in front of the church, or find free parking in the “reserved” spots in the lot at Travis and Polk.  When you walk in the front doors, you’ll be right by the park.
