KidZone



Features: The KidZone building is a state-of-the-art “tension structure,” a series of trusses interlocked with a weather-tight Teflon coated vinyl fabric. The design is cost effective and fun, featuring a skylight and cathedral-style windows that will look out to Donner Peak. Engineered to stand up against the worst Truckee winter, the building sits on a concrete slab that will be warmed with a hydronic system that heats the floor to make it even more comfortable for our budding crawlers. KidZone is a warm, well-lit space where infants, toddlers, and children can escape the winter snows for a great day of fun and stimulating play. The KidZone also features an air-to-air heat exchanger that allows for fresh air ventilation while keeping the heat in the building from going out with the outgoing air.
