Sensory Friendly Playtime (1)

Sensory Friendly Playtime

Eagles Nest Indoor Playground - September 17, 5:30 pm-7:30 pm & May 21, 5:30 pm-7:30 pm

For all kinds of minds!
New Brighton Parks and Recreation understands that not all children can attend the Eagles Nest during normal business timeframes. That is why we have partnered with the Minnesota Autism Society and the University of Minnesota Spark to create a series of Sensory Friendly playtimes at the very popular Eagles Nest Indoor Playground at the New Brighton Community Center.
