Playstar Kids at City Center; Indoor Fun For Your Younger Kids

When it’s a rainy day (or there’s smoke in the air), or you’re just looking for a place for your kids to burn off some energy, a play space can be a great option.

Playstar Kids at City Center in San Ramon, CA is a great bet for a classy, indoor place space in the Tri-Valley area. This upscale playspace is designed to provide a plush, safe, and entertaining environment.

It’s best for kids five and under–I take my one-year-old and two-year-old there all the time, and my older kid comes along to help out.

What’s at Playstar Kids?

Playstar Kids City Center is divided into two rooms. The first room is geared more towards quiet play, providing toys such as tea sets, dolls, and books.

The second room encourages active play, featuring a large climbing structure and slide, a climbing wall, blocks, ride-on plastic vehicles and more. Both rooms are covered with wall-to-wall mats to ensure your little ones are safe as they explore.

Plus, with two bathrooms, you don’t have to worry about waiting on a changing station or potty!

Tickets and Hours

You can purchase one-off tickets or get a subscription for unlimited access.

As I write this, the hours are:


Be sure to check their hours in advance, as Playstar Kids is not open every day, and they sometimes close for parties.

Speaking of which, if you’re looking for the perfect place to host your child’s birthday party, Playstar Kids has you covered. They provide an additional party room for food and drinks, located elsewhere in City Center.

I had a party there for my 2 year old and it was great.

Make it a Day

Another great thing about Playstar Kids is the proximity of lots of awesome restaurants at City Center Bishop Ranch. Grab yourself a Boba Guys tea or a Philz Coffee to enjoy as your kid plays, or head to Dela Rosa for some pizza after they’re done.
