Here’s my previously-published review of Open Gym at Silver Stars:
During the spring, summer and fall months of the year, my children and I are Montgomery County park and playground groupies. We obsess over the best slides, ratio of bucket swings to babies, best trails for animal sightings, which trains are running, whether to bring the Razor or the Big Wheel. With ice currently covering most of our favorite haunts, we are feeling like Deadheads that just lost Jerry.
Thank goodness for open gyms. The means for kids to run, crawl, jump and go bat-guano crazy on a frigid day is a blessing and a necessity. One of the best places in Silver Spring to let them loose is Silver Stars Gymnastics’ Open Gym. Open Monday – Friday for one hour, 12 – 1pm, this magical place supplies limitless options for kids to get their cuckoos out.
The gym is specially designed for children of toddler through age 7. It is simultaneously adventuresome and safe. Adults are required to participate and monitor their children, so taking turns on equipment is nicely facilitated by both Silver Stars staff and caregivers. For the older kids there are trampolines, lowered balance beams, a moonbounce with slide, Tarzan swings, scaled-down parallel and uneven bars. For the toddlers there is a room full of smaller versions of those activities, climbing structures and foam shapes to inspire creativity. The size of the facility is equal to two basketball courts.
We have enjoyed attending open gym at Silver Stars as a family for the last four years. To date, we have never had a negative experience. Whether our children were viewing the action from a sling, crawling on all fours or perfecting their split leaps, every visit has been a treat.
Cost is $7 per child, or a 12 visit pass is $60. Thankfully the staff keeps your pass on file for you, and you can use your credits to host friends for rambunctious playdates. Silver Stars closes its open gym in June in order to offer summer camps, so act now to enjoy all this indoor playground has to offer.
Silver Stars also offers classes for kids aged 18 months to 7+ years. You can try out a class without commitment for two weeks after the session start date. Trial classes cost $25 per visit and you must pre-schedule your trial class by calling 301-589-0938. Space in the class you audit is not guaranteed without payment for the entire session.
I hope to see you at Silver Stars some afternoon soon. I’ll be the blonde mom practicing her Nadia-made-for-TV-movie floor routine while her kids wait in line for the trampoline.
