2|42 Community Center

The 2|42 Church held the Grand Opening of their Community Center in December 2017. They are open 8a-9p Mondays-Saturdays and 8a-4p on Sundays. Admission is always free. A cafe is available to purchase food and drinks. They also have an adjacent turf field and a party room that can be rented.

Editor’s Note: 2|42 Community Center is run by the 2|42 Church. We recognize that our readership includes both church members and those who object to the church’s stance particularly on LGBTQ issues.

It is included here as one of the few indoor playground options in Ann Arbor and leave it to families to decide if it is the right option for their family.

Bowling

Bowling is always a great indoor activity. There are several bowling options in the Ann Arbor area.
