Great area to come for rollerblading, skateboarding, scooters and bike tricks. Sometimes crowded on nice days, but overall worth your time. Be careful, though, I've seen a lot of people wipe out here. Know the risks of extreme sports.
Fun place to come and browse. See what kinds of sports equipment you can get used (save money!) They also purchase sports equipment you no longer use, so if you have some gathering dust it can't hurt to check in to see what it's worth.
First run movies, matinee prices are very reasonable. Good sound quality. Staff are friendly when approached with problems. Sometimes it's too cold, though, so bring a jacket.
Great little preschool. They are small enough to really know your child. They have a nice playground outside and watch the children carefully. Kids really learn a lot here!
Bowling alley is open late and friendly to college students. They also have many leagues and can be reserved for groups. Food available, too. Sometimes too crowded and you have to wait a long time.
This roller rink was renovated and reopened in the late 90s. Great floor, fun time for people of all ages. Music is typical - pop hits - and there are lots of kids, especially on weekends, so be aware of that if you want to avoid too many children.
Great park for picnics, flying kites, and softball. This area used to be an airport, I"m told. It has a huge playground, too, with big slides and lots of swings and other play items. It is a fun place to come relax on weekends.
Great program for young children. Low cost preschool is friendly environment, with nice playground and activities, as well as learning time. Staff are friendly and helpful for parents.
This is the closest Ice rink to Columbia. Has good hours and is not too expensive. Ice was in good condition every time I went, and the rental skates surprisingly didn't hurt my feet!
Bought food here for fish, supplies for a lizard and also a hamster. Staff are helpful and friendly, and offer good advice for caring for many types of pets. Good variety of products.
