I know how hard it is to get young kids out of the house to go somewhere - even quick outings require you to pack enough snacks, diapers, and toys to make you think you’ll be gone for a week. And who wants to wrestle kids in and out of carseats just to find out that your destination isn’t kid-friendly? That’s why I’ve decided to visit Triangle area sites to see if they’re worth your trip. I won’t use a rating system but I’ll try to describe what you’ll see well enough for you to decide if your kids would find it interesting. I’ll also give you the heads up on bathrooms, stroller accessibility and any other SNAFUs I encounter.


Greystone Recreation Center - Raleigh

An indoor recreation center off Lead Mine Road that is run by the City of Raleigh Parks. It's in a shopping center.

As you can see from the above photo, there is no sign above the door but it's on the right side of the strip mall as you face it from Lead Mine Rd.

If you've seen the website then you've seen the only playground equipment inside - there is not a lot, but it is free. There are a couple of classrooms that are used for scheduled yoga and Zumba classes.

The equipment seemed better suited for older kids, my four year-old had a hard time climbing up on some of it and wasn't able to use the climbing wall at all. (Yes, Captain Dad is graduating. I only have one left at home now and he will be starting Pre-K next week.)

The bathrooms are clean and they provide a stool to help little ones reach the sink.
