When we were kids, our backyards, porches, and society playgrounds were our play areas mostly. But today, there are so many vibrant and fun options available for kids to enjoy their freedom and creativity. Pune is a city where many childhoods are being built with love and wonder!
I’m a mom to a high energy toddler and I’m always on the lookout for places where she can spend her energy constructively. Play grounds and safe play areas are on every parent’s radar today. Spending time in the company of nature or in an open surrounding where children can play freely, run, jump, and unleash their energy is so important for their development! You know they’re looked after and you can get all your work done without them clinging to you. Sounds like a good deal we say!
Here are a number of indoor play areas with amazing options for some kid-fun!
