Taking your kids to the mall just got a little bit more fun for the kids.
On Friday, the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) cut the ribbon on a new 1,200-square-foot play area at the King of Prussia Plaza. The space, sponsored by the hospital, is meant to give young kids a space to play and exercise at the mall.
The play area, located on the upper level of the plaza, near JC Penny and H&M, features hospital-themed foam play elements as well as tunnels, slides and things to climb on.
State Representative Tim Briggs (149th District) joined Dr. Julie Stern, a pediatric oncologist and medical director for CHOP's Oncology Outreach and King of Prussia Mall Manager Bob Hart in performing the ceremonial ribbon cutting.
