How Custom Themed Play Parks Give Families A Meaningful Experience


Getting the “right fit” matters when choosing a theme for a children’s play park in a shopping center, amusement park or other public space.  By capturing the essence of the venue’s ambiance, or by symbolizing community icons, a custom themed play park will become an impressive attraction and destination for families.


Themes can be a meaningful way to connect with the community you serve and can even provide parents with an opportunity to share a little local history in a fun way.


At Center Stage, we are proud to create magnificent, customized soft play areas for children that are strategically designed with your specific trade area in mind.  Our talented team of artists and designers work with clients to create distinctive play spaces that add character to any setting and strengthen community connections.  Collaboration happens throughout the entire process, and our team develops multiple concepts and layouts for the play park.  We can include slides, tunnels, climb-ons and other play structures that represent a source of local pride or simply complement the aesthetics of your venue.  Once your design is approved, we begin the process of transforming your vision into reality.


After the grand opening of your customized, children’s soft play park, visitors will be drawn to the unique construction and innovative design features.  Depending on the design theme, children may learn historical facts about their community, tips for healthy living or interact with a local team mascot replica.  Parents will be impressed by the unique design, and many will feel a sense of pride or community.  Your play park will become a destination for family fun by combining an exciting play space with a customized theme that resonates with visitors.

Here some examples of Center Stage’s customized soft play parks:

Vintage Faire Mall

The centerpiece of this “healthy living” themed play park is a large peach tree with a double slide and is accompanied by a Yosemite hiking trail and more local landmarks!

Inspiration for the theme of this play area came naturally as Vintage Faire Mall, located in Modesto, California lies within one of the greatest agricultural areas of the United States, the San Joaquin Valley.

Pierre Bossier Mall

Christiana Mall

When you approach the play park at the Christiana Mall, you are greeted by YoUDee who is the official mascot of the University of Delaware Fighting Blue Hens. This park also includes a race car to allow little ones to imagine they’re racing at Dover International Speedway and the Delaware Memorial Bridge, a twin suspension bridge crossing the Delaware River.

Deptford Mall


The custom designed indoor play area at the Deptford Mall was inspired by the historic moment when the first hot air balloon landed in Deptford, NJ. More than 200 years ago, President George Washington watched as Jean-Pierre Blanchard soared over the Delaware River and into New Jersey skies, before finally landing in Deptford Township for the first hot air balloon flight and landing in North America’s history.

This play area illustrates the landing of the hot air balloon in a colorful meadow.  The centerpiece is a large rainbow-colored hot air balloon with a cloud slide and is accompanied by a flower crawl bridge, a dairy cow and bumble bee ride-on and a caterpillar crawl through and slide.
