Welcome to Creation Station!

Have you ever found yourself thinking on a too cold, too hot, too rainy, too rambunctious day: "Dear Lord, why isn't there some indoor play space that has something for everyone, including me?" Well, your prayers have been answered. Bellevue Baptist Church's Creation Station has an amazing indoor playground for babies through big kids!

Walk into the East Entrance of Bellevue Baptist Church and you'll be awe-struck by a multi-story climbing and sliding structure akin to a tube maze of a hamster's wildest dreams. There is ample seating (and WiFi), a cafe for coffee and snack refills, and family-friendly restrooms.

Adjacent to this atrium of awesomeness is a toddler room with tumbling mats, cushy climbing surfaces, and plenty to explore. We started making regular visits to this space when my daughter began to crawl.

What to expect?

There is plenty of parking near the East Entrance.

When you enter the building, you'll be asked to sign in at the kiosk, where a friendly person will be standing to greet you. (Don't worry - Bellevue has never contacted me for any reason.)

Adults must supervise children at all times, so make sure there are enough grown-ups to monitor play in both the toddler room and East Lobby play structure if you are bringing a group of mixed-age kids.

The play space is FREE of charge in exchange for being free of illness and offensive behavior - keep all of that at home, please.

If you want to know more, you can read the Policies and Procedures before you visit.

Now, count your blessings, have fun, and climb on!
