With obesity now affecting 17 percent of children, getting them used to an active lifestyle at an early age is essential. In an effort to encourage phsyical activity and healthy play among children, St. Luke's Hospital has opened a newly renovated play area on the lower level of Chesterfield Mall near Sears.
“The St. Luke’s Hospital Play Area at Chesterfield Mall is a great new space for local families,” said Dr. Elizabeth Lucas, St. Luke’s Urgent Care medical director, in a press release. “Not only does it provide a fun, safe diversion for little ones during family shopping trips, it’s also an opportunity for the children to learn healthy habits by exercising and getting some good health tips along the way.”
The indoor, all-weather playground features structures for climbing and exploring with comfortable seating around the space for parents and other caregivers.
