Local McDonald’s-loving kids can rejoice as the fast-food giant has announced that two recently remodeled Vancouver restaurants have reopened with new play places.
The restaurants, at 5517 N.E. Gher Road in Orchards and 405 S.E. 131st Ave. near Mill Plain, will have brand new climbing structures and digital toys.
Children can play on the new multilevel indoor obstacle course, and the company says that the play place will be a sanitized environment. The restaurants will also offer free wireless internet access for patrons dining in.
“As a parent and grandparent, I understand how important it is to have a safe and exciting place for kids to play and I am happy that we can provide these places,” said Val Hadwin, a local McDonald’s owner and operator. “It’s also a great place for parents to come to when they want to relax while their kids play and burn off some energy.”
The Mill Plain location also was remodeled to include a special seating area for seniors within the play place area.
“There was a need for extra seating for our seniors, which was a fun problem to have,” Hadwin said. “So now we have a play place that also acts as a meeting place for our seniors, and we made sure to create special seating with them in mind.”
