Nothing beats mall play areas for free, energy-burning fun. Not all malls in Atlanta have these enclosed spaces with soft climbing surfaces. So before packing up the family, check out our list of favorites.

North Point Mall in Alpharetta

Children love to take a break from shopping at this soft play area. Kids have the choice of climbing (on an ambulance, fire station dog and a bridge), or running laps around the “street” in the play area. Parents can sit and supervise on the soft benches surrounding the area. Bonus for the grown-ups: this one has tables, chairs and a charging station. Outside of Von Maur. Newly-remodeled play area coming Fall 2019.

Cumberland Mall in West Atlanta

Kids can get the wiggles out by climbing on the under-the-sea themed structures. This enclosed, soft play area also has a large TV screen, keeping younger kids entertained even longer. Near the Sears entrance.

Town Center at Cobb in Kennesaw

Families flock to this 1,100-square-foot play area. Kids can slide or climb on cars, boats and planes, play interactive games and use the photo cutouts to snap a fun photo. Parents can supervise from the soft benches in the mostly enclosed play area. The skylights above make this area especially bright and airy. Just outside JCPenny on the upper level.

Mall of Georgia in Buford

The mall’s play area provides not only soft climbing structures, but also a decent-sized clubhouse complete with a slide. It’s spacious with plenty of soft seating and tables for parents. In the Von Maur Court.

Avalon in Alpharetta

Mixed-use destination Avalon has an indoor/outdoor playground. The 1,300-square-foot squirrel-themed interactive play area gives children ages six and younger a space to play. A neat feature: garage-style doors are open in good weather and closed when it’s cold. Located next to Regal Cinemas and Kona Grill.

Plaza Fiesta 

The large indoor playground features plenty of ways to climb up, slide down and run around in the towering play space. Visitors can also play classic video games in the arcade. Located next to the food court area.
