Recently I took Willow to the Free Range Lifestyle Centre.
I had heard about it on social media and have been meaning to go there for ages. So one day while desperately looking for something to entertain us, I remembered about it and headed out there.
It is located at the corner of Witkoppen and Kingfisher Drive in Fourways. The whole centre is geared around families and kids. There is a host of little shops to browse, a hairdresser, a beauty salon, a restaurant, and a photography studio.
There are also two playgrounds to play on – one for the bigger kids and one for the littles. This made me particularly happy as it has been so difficult to find places for Willow to play where she is not overwhelmed by equipment that is too big for her or children who are much older than her. There are also childminders, which is another boon.
The centre also has shops that cater for the kids with activities such as cooking lessons and crafts. This makes for a really fun morning out.
Willow and I visited on our own, so we just browsed a few of the stores and she played in the play area. But I’m really looking forward to going back with A. A lot of the parents there were enjoying brunch while their kids played. I loved that and would really like to make it a family outing soon.
I love that there are places like this in Joburg, and it’s not too far from home. I’d say this centre is a big win and somewhere we will definitely be coming back to.
