In a town that is wintry several months out of the year, there was no public place for kids to be active indoors. Five moms and one grandpa did something about it. They built a nonprofit playground called the Romp Room, a warm place where kids can run, climb, swing, socialize and play. It is open now.
The indoor playground features an outdoor “Pagosa Springs” theme with climbing wall, fort, cabin, slide, swings, imagination stimulation activities, STEM toys and, soon, a real waterfall (after Treasure Falls), all on safety-rated flooring to protect against bumps and bruises.
It is geared toward little ones, ages 0-6 years, locals and tourists alike.
The Romp Room will be run such that moms and dads who cannot afford the entry fee can work a number of hours (with their kids) and trade that for membership. It is also looking for grandparents who would like to volunteer a few hours a month.
Grandparents can buy special holiday memberships now through Nov. 15 if they stop in or call (970) 400-1278.
The facility is located in the River Center at 136 E. Pagosa St., No. 7, Pagosa Springs. Hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 3 to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday. There will be additional hours during vacation periods.
If you would like to be involved, please email romppagosa@gmail.com. To see progress and events, the Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/theromproom/.
