Chapel Hill kids have a new place to play outside, and it’s on the roof.
A delay in the construction of Kidzu Children’s Museum’s new location has left the educational play place without a venue. But to fix that, the museum today will launch Plazapalooza, a free program atop Wallace Parking Deck Plaza.
The parking deck, located at a corner of East Rosemary Street and Henderson Street, will host the program on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays throughout September.
“We were hoping we’d be open by now so the community would have things to do,” Clossick said.
Kidzu will permanently relocate to the Wallace Plaza, hopefully by 2015, she said.
The Wallace Plaza location will offer seven times more space than the Franklin Street spot.
Kidzu Board Chairman Dennis Schaecher said University Square construction should be completed in a matter of weeks.
Board member Joel Levy said the building was slowed by the stringent codes the museum had to adhere to as a children-centric business.
