This week we were invited down to tour the new Chelsea Piers facility being built in Stamford. They are still under construction so we had to use our imagination a bit. It was all good. My gang of boys were thrilled to wear the bright yellow hard hats.
We know Chelsea Piers in NYC well. We used to live a bike ride away and have spent many an hour playing soccer, ice skating and attending birthday parties there. When we found out they were expanding to CT we were super excited. 400,000 square feet of sporty fun all under one roof!
We were blown away, as the pictures clearly show the expressions on the boys' faces. Two Ice Skating rinks with a heated sitting area for parents as well as a restaurant that looks out onto the rink! A trampoline park and rock climbing wall - yes, a large area that has a trampoline as the floor! A ball pit, huge gymnastics area, an Olympic sized swimming pool that includes a hydraulic floor that can be lifted or lowered to your desired height. A water slide area that even the grown ups want to play in. Soccer, basketball, squash, tennis, water polo, volleyball you name it. They've got it.
