The motto at Badlands Playspace in Rockville is “Real Play, Inspired Learning.” That’s because this place recognizes that kids don’t just learn in a classroom; rather, they also learn from play.
At Badlands, children from age 2 all the way up to 13 can take part in activities and programs that help them work on their problem solving abilities, confidence, and cooperation all in a safe and fun environment. The 30,000-square-foot indoor facility is inspired by the great outdoors, with trees, rock walls, and rolling hills. A workshop with tools and workbenches helps inspire little inventors, and an exhibit space houses interactive activities that change every three months.
