Ask just about any kid, and the answer is the same: rainy days are just no fun. Better yet, ask any parent with young kids. You’ll probably get an even stronger answer! Outdoor amenities abound in Norco, but there are plenty of quality indoor activities available, too. Here are a few of our favorites.
Aerosports Trampoline Park
If your kids are on the verge of destroying the furniture with their pent-up energy, then Aerosports Trampoline Park in nearby Corona may be the perfect rainy day solution. What more is there to say? It’s an arena full of trampolines! Your kids will love trying high-flying stunts and the feeling of exhilaration that comes from flying through the air. There are open jump times every day, or try ultimate dodgeball or trampoline basketball (coming soon).
Grab Some Food and Catch the Game
If your posse is getting hungry and there’s a game on you want to see, drive down to see us at the Field House. Your whole crew can enjoy a delicious meal, and you can watch the game while you eat on the TVs we have on site. Or, if the rain isn’t too heavy and the time is right, ask for a table overlooking the athletic fields and enjoy watching soccer players duke it out in less than prime conditions. Watching soccer players slip and slide rather than run gracefully always adds an element of humor!
La La Barn
Conveniently located right in Norco, La La Barn is an indoor playground with play structures and toys for kids of all ages. A dedicated, gated area for toddlers keeps your littlest ones safe and away from the commotion. The main play area has climbing structures, obstacle course features, and lots more. La La Barn is available for open play, and it can also be rented out for parties. In addition, the La LaBarn staff offers Mommy and Me classes, pre-K reading classes, and painting classes.
A rainy day doesn’t have to be a boring day. Don’t stay cooped up all day—check out one of these great indoor activities instead.
About the Author
A visit to The Arts Colony (TAC), one of many attractions located in Corona Heritage Park, is a chance to expand your appreciation for the arts while immersing yourself in a wash of local culture. At TAC you can enjoy viewing the work of artists from southern California and beyond in a casual atmosphere. You may even have the pleasure of watching artists in residence create their next masterpiece.
TAC and the entire Corona Heritage Park is a testament to the people of the community as it is a 100% volunteer non-profit organization. Arriving at the park feels like you’re arriving to a special location—and you are! The site of Corona Heritage Park is a historical lemon ranch. TAC and the other park attractions are spread out across five-acres where lemons once grew. The gallery itself is situated in a charming turn-of-the-century home, one of several preserved buildings that house the park’s educational and visitor centers.
You never know what type of art you’ll see at TAC. Themed shows rotate throughout the year and may focus on a variety of media. Several members are award-winning artists, respected in more than one art society and nationally recognized, so sometimes the work displayed can be of a very high caliber. Some shows feature the work of less experienced artists or grade-school students. But no matter what show happens to be running when you visit, the experience of seeing a working art colony is fun and educational.
TAC is open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and is only a 20-minute drive from Field House Restaurant. After checking out all the great art and doing some shopping—many of the artworks are for sale—you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy dinner and spend some time discussing your favorite pieces of the day.
