Family Fun Inside+Out

Your oldest says he wants to kayak. Your tween daughter wants to find an escape room. The little one is happy as long as he gets a pizza. In Ridgeland, the answer is yes, yes and yes. From an indoor trampoline park to kayaking on the Rez, we have family-friendly activities galore (and, yes, several local pizza shops!) to keep all of the kids–and mom and dad–happy.

For Big and Little Kids

For kiddos, teens, and children at heart, fun awaits. Take advantage of Ridgeland’s acres of parks and miles of trails or enjoy indoor adventures like museums, indoor rock climbing and a high-flying trampoline park. The only difficulty? Deciding what to do first!

Family Festivals and More

Community is at the heart of Ridgeland, which means there’s always something fun going on that you can share with family and friends! Check back regularly to see what festival, holiday gathering or event is coming up and mark those calendars so you don’t miss a thing!
