Where do you take a toddler in Denver? Not to the Village at Edgewater, not anymore, not since the "soft play-cafe" closed this summer, after a noble attempt to provide a family-friendly environment.

So where do you take a toddler in town? You stay home, suggests Dan5280:

Had I known about this place, I would have brought my tot and given it a shot (with booze? Pun intended). I mean, it sounds like a disaster for someone without kids, but every parent knows how much of a disaster taking their little-one's out can be...which is why a lot of us end up eating great food at lunch and pretty much stay home in the evenings, cooking with the family.

Sorry to hear they didn't make it....

If it didn't take this Village to feed a kid, what family-friendly options in town really work?

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
