Your Kids Will Find Four Stories of Fun and Wonder at Kids Castle in Doylestown

July 29, 2014 2:01 pm

Imagine a wooden castle that’s four stories tall. You can climb it and explore all of the different rooms and sections inside. Take a ride down the slide or feel like you’re flying on the swings. If this is exciting for you, imagine how much fun your kids will have!

Located in Doylestown’s Central Park, Kids Castle is a community funded project that has been entertaining kids (and adults) since 1997. Visitors insist that there’s more than meets the eye here at Kids Castle. You would never guess it, but behind those wooden walls, kids will find a fun maze that will take them to an exciting slide. Run over the drawbridge and see what’s waiting for you on the other side.

Grab the kids and make a day of it! And be sure to bring lunch: picnic tables surround the castle. Check the website for more details.
