Commons for Kids

Our Friday morning focus is officially on the kids of Columbus. Little people can give the carousel a whirl or hit the bounce-houses free of charge. We’ve got something for every kind of tyke with the Imagination Playground, crafts, and games. If Mother Nature cooperates (when the temperature is 80 degrees or above), we will feature an inflatable water slide and kid's swimsuits are welcome.
