Sensory-friendly event in New Brighton

Do you know a child who has challenges with traditional playground settings? How about large crowds? New Brighton Parks and Recreation understands that not all children can attend the Eagles Nest during normal business hours. That’s why it has partnered with the Minnesota Autism Society to create a series of sensory-friendly events at the popular indoor playground, located in the New Brighton Community Center, 400 10th St. NW.

There will be a limited number of admissions sold at a reduced rate for each session. They are Sundays, May 19, and Sept. 22, each from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Attendees can guarantee admission by pre-purchasing tickets for their children on the city’s website.  

The Parks and Recreation Department will have additional staff on site to assist with accommodation requests, as well as a quiet space for those who need a break during the event. For more information go to or call 651-638-2124.
