Kid and Family-Friendly Amenities at the Mall
From playing and exploring to snacking and shopping, we love being able to welcome guests of all ages here! Take a peek at some of our favorite ways for making the mall a family-friendly destination…
From our play area to mother’s nursing rooms, to frequent events created just for kiddos and more, we take being family-friendly pretty seriously around here. From our littlest visitors to the ones who can remember back to when West Acres was built, we love getting to bring the magic of the mall to guests of all ages! No matter the ages of your children, you can expect to find amenities, events, and stores around the mall fit for every member of your family.
Take a look at some of our favorite ways we love to welcome the entire family to West Acres!
Convenience & Amenities
Offering services and helpful amenities is a simple way for us to make sure your trip to West Acres is focused on what it should be: making memories with your family!
We offer free coat check all year round at Guest Services, so you can drop your jackets off before a day of exploring the mall! And if your kiddos are looking to burn off some energy, head just across the way to our CaringforKids Playland, located in the Food Court.
Other amenities we are pleased to offer include family restrooms and mother’s nursing rooms. We have two sets of both, located near the Food Court and the lower level of the mall.
Favorite Kids Stores
From toys to treats, our list of must-stop shops for kiddos includes stores for every age! Here are a few of our favorites:
- Stride Rite: Their newly expanded store offers toys, pajamas, coats, blankets, and so much more! And of course, a wide selection of children’s footwear.
- Legacy Toys: With toys and games galore, Legacy Toys is a favorite for kids and kids-at-heart alike.
- JCPenney: Did you know JCPenney has a section dedicated to Disney in their upper level? We’ve found Toy Story character costumes, JoJo Siwa bows, and so much more in their upstairs wonderland!
- Best Buy: The kid’s games and gadgets at Best Buy take tech to a whole new level for little ones! You’ll find a wide assortment of entertainment for kids of all ages in their toy section.
- Real Good Bath & Body: Real Good Bath & Body sells locally-made bath and body products, including bath bombs for kids. Find tons of fun scents and colors, like a cloud-shaped bath bomb that releases rainbow colors once it hits the water!
A Host of Fun Spaces
Looking for a place to host a birthday party, shower, or another event? Our Community Room, located in the lower level, is a multi-purpose space that we open to the public to rent for events of all kinds!

Events for All Ages
Our events calendar is packed all year-round, and so much of the fun is designed just for kids! We regularly host Story Squad, a story time during morning hours featuring different readers and books, Pop Up Play, a day of interactive play featuring pop-up booths from organizations around the community, and so many more kid-related events!
From educational events centered around science or art, to just downright fun activities like princess-themed parties or superhero meet & greets, you can expect to find events to keep the whole family busy.
