With room to park double-wide strollers, NEST'S easy-access ground level gives young urban families much to explore. A welcoming staff will direct visitors to a 3,000 sq. ft. nature-themed playspace with dedicated party and playdate areas, innovative and educational toys to discover, and cozy furnishings on which to perch. A meandering “creek” guides children through nature-inspired play features, and an oversized birdhouse serves as the ultimate NEST centerpiece. Parents can overlook the play area while hooking into the free wi-fi. Kids can stock up on wooden organic produce at the farmers market and toddlers can crawl around in a padded, trample-free nest of their own that’s safe from older kids. Thoughtfully designed, the NEST playspace is a comfortable place to gather, make new friends, and pack in some serious playtime.
