THE TREE HOUSE INDOOR PLAY-CENTRE
The Tree House is great for younger, pre-school kids. There is one large play structure, a jumping castle and a smaller enclosed area for toddlers. The space isn’t big but it has everything you need for a morning of afternoon activity.
If you’re in Dee Why or Cromer on a rainy day with your little one, you’ll find enough to keep them occupied for the morning.
Where is the Tree House?
The Tree House is part of a bigger play centre called Zone 3 Play Centre. Set amongst some industrial buildings it can be hard to find.
The official address for the Tree House is Corner of South Creek Road and Thew Parade, Dee Why West. Your GPS but find it better if you swap Dee Why West for Cromer.
Park on Thew Parade as that is the street where the entrance to the Tree House is.
The website says that there is lots of parking onsite but I haven’t been able to work out where it is. When we visited we found parking off Hew Parade in the parking lot where the coffee shop is. I am not sure whether this is the parking referred to on the website.
The Tree House Features
The Tree House only allows children under the age of 6. I would say that it may not even be suitable for children over the age of 5 because of the limited amount of free running space.
As with most indoor play-centres, The Tree House has the potential to get very hot. We visited on a cool summer day and were still hot inside.
The Tree House is probably the cleanest play centre I have ever been to. You are not allowed eating in the play area which is probably why. Outside the play area there are chairs and tables where you can sit and eat the snacks you have brought. There are high chairs on offer too.
While the play-center previously hosted birthday parties it no longer does and you are specially precluded from taking shared food into the play centre. You can only bring food for your own child.
The Tree House Facilities
There is a baby changing room which is inside the building. The adult toilets are just outside the building but in the same complex.
There are juices available to purchase but no food. Water is also on offer for kids with those multi-coloured Ikea cups for easy use by the little ones.
If you need something to eat and drink there is a bakery next door. It has pies, coffees and sweet treats. I believe that the bakery is a Skyline Bakery and the address for that is 38/ 1 – 5 Hew Parade.
