The top 10 indoor playgrounds in Toronto

Indoor playgrounds in Toronto are scattered throughout the city, so there's likely a sterilized and enclosed option near you. These range from all-purpose facilities to themed adventure parks. Don't forget to bring your socks, they're pretty much mandatory and even if they weren't, would you really want you or your kids to go bare foot?

These are my picks for the top indoor playgrounds in Toronto.

Playground Paradise
This city run indoor playground is attached to Flemingdon Park Community Centre, and for a paltry $2.50 for two hours your kid will love the elaborate climbing structure, giant slides, ball pit, and dramatic arts area. Geared towards toddlers up to 12 year olds.

Balls of Fun
Kids love balls. That's a fact. So why not toss them into a room entirely covered in balls of all shapes and sizes? There's no set timetable to sweat over, just show up (open Tuesday to Sunday) and play. Prices hover at around $10 for admission.

Kidnasium
While they don't boast an open schedule, the gymnastics classes here keep kids in the Mount Pleasant and Eglinton area bending their way through various obstacles. Programs start at $250 a season, while drop in play is every Friday morning from 10-11am.

Sprouts
East side parents love Sprout. It's clean, the gym/playground is always open, and parents score a free coffee just to ease them through it. There are variety of membership options, which start at $62.50 for six visits.

Oaks 'n Acorns
Oaks 'n Acorns combines education and physical fitness with a slew of programming at their Danforth and recently opened Junction locations. Membership has its perks here: non-members pay $6 to pay, members half price. If you go often, you'll save big.

Enchanted Castle
With locations in East York and around the GTA, Enchanted Castle is the best place for parents to sit this play out. CCTV's keep you in the loop, as your kid runs through the castle-themed play structures, suspension bridges and slides.

PlayTown
This impressive space in Missisauga is built to resemble an actual small town, so don't go all Godzilla and ruin the fun. Ranging from $6 for the under two crowd, up to $11 for 12 year olds.

Air Riderz
Another 'sauga-based big box venture with 26,000 sparwling square feet of jumping fun. Prices start out at $13 an hour (two hours for ages 3-5), and go up to $20 for two hours. Giant slide prices are (boo) separate.

Kids Fun Town
Kids in the Danforth and Woodbine area keep coming back to this laid back indoor play place, geared mostly towards kids six and under. Play favourites give kids just the right amount of thrills, while severely limiting any type of spills. Starts at $7 a go.

Extreme Fun
Extreme Fun has over 5,000 square feet of games and things to climb, but you're better off teaching junior the fine art of foosball or to hit up the air hockey tables and show them what it really means to say elbows off the table. Classes will set you back $7.
