Canadian's Airports With Play Area

While many airports are opening new, innovative play areas for kids, don't leave your child there without supervision. No matter how secure the airport seems, a supervised play is a safe play. Here is a list of Airports with a Play area in Canada.

Toronto Pearson International Airport

Toronto Pearson International Airport has several small children's play areas in terminals 1 and 3.

Terminal 1: A mini children’s play area can be found at Domestic Departure Gate 124. Terminal 3: A children’s play area can be found at International Departure Gate C34.

Put your kids in some "Comfy Cars." In Terminal 1, you'll find them in the Domestic Departures area next to Gates 140, 144 and 106. In Terminal 3, look for a Comfy Car and jungle gym next to Gate C34. More Comfy Cars are on Pier B, near Gate B14 in Terminal 3. Also in Terminal 1, you'll find play areas with plenty of room for parents, too.
