Here's some good end-of-year news for neighborhood parents:
The Charles Houston Recreation Center will be adding a "soft playroom" sometime in late January or early February.
The Parks & Recreation Department created a soft playroom at Chinquapin Recreation Center a few years ago in response to parental demand and it has been very popular.
Designed for preschool age children five and younger, a soft playroom offers a clean play environment to burn off energy. Parents, guardians and their kids can share play zones loaded with soft toys and activities, while meeting with existing playgroups and making new friends.
