Thousands of people have moved to downtown DC and Mount Vernon Triangle in the last several years, and thousands more are expected. Over 19 million people visit the nation’s capital every year as tourists. The business development in this part of town was designed to attract people drawn to the convenience, culture, and community of city life, but when it comes to metro-friendly indoor spaces where kids can run, play, and gather with their friends regardless of what the weather is like outside, the downtown area falls short. Many of us have opted to make the trek to take our kids to parties, classes, or play time at places outside the city, but if the choice is between an extra hour in traffic or an extra hour of playing, there is no question what busy families would rather have! Additionally, after hours spent soaking up culture and trekking through museums and monuments, visiting families would love to have someplace within easy reach for their tired kids to unwind, avoid getting "museumed out," and recharge to get ready for the next journey through history. With Junior’s Clubhouse, our hope is to create a spectacular space downtown that will be exciting, nurturing, and educational for kids, and that will be convenient and comfortable for their grownups. Located in a prime position among downtown’s residential buildings and hotels, and within an easy walk from a downtown Metro stop and public parking garage, Junior’s Clubhouse will be conveniently situated for downtown’s families and tourists. This fund raise will help us gather the financing to secure a lease at a location that will be close to the Metro Center or Gallery Place Metro stop.
