A great place for families to meet and play!

The Melrose Family Room is a cooperative of families of infants and young children through age six.

The Melrose Family Room was established in October 1988 as a gathering place for families of infants and young children through age six. The room provides the space for families to play, talk, discuss parenting concerns and get to know other families from Melrose and the surrounding communities. There are assorted toys, equipment, games, arts & crafts activities and snacks in the room.

What's Happening at the Melrose Family Room?

The Melrose Family Room's drop-in play space for members has arts & crafts activities and toy stations ready for play anytime we're open.

We also schedule regular events for our member community to connect, and host private parties for members. Take a look at our upcoming event highlights to the right (or below on mobile phones) or take a look at current and past events to get a feel the types of events we hold on our events page.
