Think The Domain is just a place for adults to hang out? Think again! Here are all the kid friendly spots at The Domain in Austin.
Kid Friendly Spots at The Domain in Austin
The Domain- Century Oaks Park (between North Italia and Starbucks)
This is the spot with the butterfly benches and giant armadillo to climb on (great photo-op!). The floor is cushioned and it’s right next to a Starbucks, so you can grab a coffee and sip it while your little ones play.
Also right here is The Museum of Ice Cream! It’s one of our favorite places ever (we’ve been 3 times!) and fun for all ages. What kid wouldn’t want to jump into a pool of sprinkles?!
Not far from here is Sur La Table, which offers fun cooking camps for kids during the summer! My older boys took a week long cooking camp here and not only did they make the most delicious things, they had a ton of fun.
There’s a small play are out front of Whole Foods as well. Grab something to eat & drink and sit outside while the kids play! There’s a Spun Ice Cream food truck out there as well.
Century Oaks Lawn (next to The Yard Milkshake Bar)
The Yard Milkshake Bar is quite the experience. They have unique ice cream flavors if you don’t want a shake, but the real reason to come here is for the over-the-top milkshakes. Event the smallest size are big enough for 2 people to share but good luck getting everyone to agree on what flavor to choose! They all sound (and look) amazing. There’s also a little fenced in play area and splash pad for kids next to The Yard.
Domain II (between Dick’s and Dillards)
This section of The Domain is referred to as Domain II. There are 3 little play areas for kids over here, as well as a great lawn across from iPic Theaters where you can play lawn games on Saturdays. There used to be a mini train for kids over here too, but I’m not sure if it’s still running since Covid.
The new Jump! Gymnastics is opening up over here at 10910 Domain Dr. this fall!
Little Land will be opening here soon as well, right across from Jump!
There’s another great lawn area out in front of Culinary Dropout. We like to get cupcakes from Sprinkles and eat them out on the lawn while the kids play. They often hold kid-friendly events here throughout the year. Culinary Dropout has fun games on their covered patio that kids will enjoy. The Yard House has a great patio and fun kids menu as well.
