• Book Your Appointment to Play at The Children’s Playhouse

    Located at 400 Tracy Circle, The Children’s Playhouse is open year round for hands-on play for kids from birth to age 8 and their favorite grown-ups.

    For your safety and to avoid crowding, we require play reservations at this time.  If you have difficulty with the form or if you want to come at a different time than the slots offered, please call 828-263-0011 and we can help you. The appointments are for staggered entry times. You are welcome to stay longer if you like but please remember food is not allowed inside The Playhouse and both outside and inside are peanut-free and nut-free zones.

    Masks are recommended. Please do not bring your child to The Playhouse at any time if anyone in your family has been exposed to COVID-19 in the last 10 days or if anyone in your family has had fever, diarrhea, or vomiting in the last 24 hours.
