FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – A new indoor playground opened at Jefferson Pointe Saturday.

The playground is sponsored by Lutheran Children's Hospital and spans 3500 square feet.

The new play area is located next to Barnes & Noble, complete with replicas of Johnny Appleseed, Colonial era memorabilia and 14 other fun activities.

The indoor playground replaces a food court, which mall officials decided to recreate due to low attendance.
