Playspace is a play area attached to a preschool, that is open to the public. It was definitely one of our favorite places when both my children were preschoolers, and for our playgroup, too. For infants, they have a padded area with mirrors and floor toys. There are sensory drawers, an art area, dressups, a reading area, and ride-on toys for toddlers. For older kids, there is a waterplay area, sandpit and climbing wall. Everything is under-cover, which makes it a good choice all-year-round.
You are not supposed to bring food in from outside, but they are not too strict about it. You can buy coffee, juice, and cookies, and eat them at the little eating area. There are magazines for parents to read in that area.
I just read on their Chinese website that they are not open until March 2011, due to renovations. If you are not familiar with Taiwan's school holidays, you should probably give them a call before you go, as they do close during vacations, and I believe they are also closed Mondays.
At time of writing, the entry charge was $250 per child + 1 adult for 3 hours. Each extra adult $50 each. You can also buy a 10-hour card.
