The Ward Church Playscape, located at our Northville campus, is for children 12 and under and is free and open to everyone 5 days a week. It is available for private party rentals on Saturdays. So whether you’re stopping by to let your children work off extra energy, meeting some friends to reconnect while your kids play, or want to relax while your kids play in a safe, fun environment, we hope you feel at home and know you are welcome. Parking near and entering through Entry 1 or Entry 3 may be the most convenient route to the Playscape.
