In the winter, there are fewer options for children to play. That’s where Hippity Hip Community Playspace comes in, it will be an eco-friendly spot with toys, games, arts and crafts and much more. It will be located in the South Wedge at 131 Gregory Street.

Temperatures are dropping, so where can you take your kids to play when it's cold out? One Rochester mom didn't find many options, so she's making her own.

Jenna Chew, wife and mother of two is making an indoor play space where parents can socialize and kids can make friends too.

"We exhausted all our options in the city," Chew said. "We went to all the museums and all the parks."

She raised the money she needed to start this play space by crowd-funding and with the help of the community she raised more than $5,000.

Now Chew hopes to give back to the community by creating a support system for parents like herself.

"The idea is to really create the village parents are looking for; it's a play space for kids but even more than that a community space that will bring people together," Chew said. "A lot of parents who wouldn't necessarily meet are going to have a place they congregate and get together."

Chew plans to charge $7 per child to use the space for the whole day. Adults and children older than 7 would be free. Chew is hoping to have the space open on Small Business Saturday, November 25th.
