Goodbye to KidWorks

If you haven’t heard yet, starting January 2, 2019 Port Discovery will begin construction on two new major exhibits in order to make room for more exciting and adventurous experiences, Port Discovery must officially say Goodbye to KidWorks, but we couldn't do so without your help!

 Join us all month long to say goodbye to KidWorks – and celebrate your happy memories and big accomplishments on our climber!  Climb up, down and all around – and be sure to tie a ribbon with a favorite memory or message saying goodbye to KidWorks. Also join us on Monday, January 1, 2019 for a celebration like no other as we say one last – and crazy fun - final farewell to KidWorks. Aside from fun celebrations throughout the day, one lucky slider will get be the last kid ever to slide down KidWorks. Plus, we’ll send the messiest, heaviest and goofiest objects down the slide. It will be a day to remember!

Port Disocvery is also celebrating providing powerful, purposeful play to children and families for 20 years the entire month of December! From our Birthday Extravaganza Weekend to our official birthday party on December 29th, you wont want to miss any of this fun!
