If the parents want even more time than just dinner to themselves, Velaa has created an inspired kids play area. Protected enough from sun (and even the rare rain shower), but open-air so that the little ones are not stuck in side. Not just a kiddie pool, but a water fountain play area. And this is one pool area where running is allowed. Because Velaa has laid down soft padding across the ground (as well as a sand box area adjacent – see left above) so any uh-ohs don’t become boo-boos.
