Children's Play & Discovery Center

Lee's Summit, Missouri

Paradise Park is a 38,000-square-foot indoor and outdoor combination family entertainment center and children's edutainment center. The family entertainment portion opened in late November 2003 and the children's edutainment (play & discovery) center opened in February 2004. The edutainment center takes up about half the first floor and also includes a half-acre outdoor adventure play garden. The 2nd floor contains six birthday party rooms and a meeting room that is shared by both the edutainment and family entertainment centers.

The White Hutchinson Leisure & Learning Group performed the feasibility study for the center and handled full design and production of the entire facility, including specialized training for the play staff.

Paradise Park was awarded the 2004 Golden Token Award as the best new/renovated family entertainment center by the International Association for the Leisure & Entertainment Industry (IALEI).
