With 39 shops, restaurants, and entertainment experiences, Downtown Container Park is your go-to destination for fun family things to do in Las Vegas. Stop searching for activities to do with your family on vacation, this unique open-air shopping center built from shipping containers has affordable and budget-friendly entertainment options to make sure everyone in the family is having fun, down to the little ones.
Downtown Container Park is your one-stop-shop entertainment, dining, and shopping venue. The park opened in 2013 and was constructed with sustainability in mind, using stacked shipping containers and modular cubes. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another industrial design like this one made of recycled metal containers composed in such a fun way.
Art is a focal piece here at the park. At the entrance, you’ll find a 55-foot praying mantis that shoots flames from its antennas. Originally a Burning Man art piece, this mantis has traveled great lengths from one desert to another. It now reigns permanently over Downtown Container Park.
This season, enjoy the Treehouse and Play Zone, a one-of-a-kind, dynamic interactive affair for the whole family. Check out the concerts at the Lawn or scoop up a Waffelato to indulge with kids. Check out these five experiences for the family at Downtown Container Park.
Things To Do With Your Family
- Treehouse Playground
Who doesn’t love a treehouse, especially one complete with slides that both parents and children can enjoy? Designed for families in mind, let your inner child run wild with your kids as you search for the hidden stairs and explore the interactive features in the Treehouse Play Zone. Discover foam building blocks, and even a 33-foot slide made from a shipping container. Climb to the top and get a bird’s eye view of this outdoor wonderland as you search for the next fun thing to do on this list.
- Enjoy Concerts at The Lawn or Entertainment at the Dome
Enjoy free live music, most evenings at Downtown Container Park. The Lawn is a green space with lounge seating and large lego blocks that kids can use as they let their imaginations run wild. Check the Entertainment section calendar for events like the monthly “Kids Camp” series.
Get those feet moving and grab some glowing headphones and head down to the Lawn to boogie with 3 Live DJs at the “Silent Disco” event. A fun family-friendly event where you can choose between 3 channels of music.
Get a $25 all-day pass to The Dome, an immersive, 4K-visual dome entertainment experience. It’s an experience the whole family can enjoy. Inspired by downtown Las Vegas, we know everyone will be talking about it on the flight or drive home. Rock out to the music of U2, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin as the indoor dome lights up with colorful images. Learn about the universe with Perfect Little Planet or transport to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth, with Dinosaurs at Dusk.
- The Pixel Sticker Room
Designed to create a community-driven experience, what once started as a crisp white room is now covered with colorful stickers. Encourage your family members to leave a message of gratitude about their vacation or write something about what they learned on their visit to Las Vegas to decorate the walls. When you buy something at Downtown Container Park, you’ll get a sticker so you can leave your unique mark in the interactive art piece. #awesome #thepixelstickerroom
- Eat a Waffelato
Satisfy your little one’s sweet tooth with a delicious Gelato in a signature Hong Kong waffle. Made fresh in the store, we know you’ll love the Bubble Waffle filled with Red Raspberry Sorbet. We should mention it also comes with sprinkles on top. Yummy! Enjoy a wide selection of cuisines that will be sure to make even the pickiest eaters smile.
- Try a Dance Class
Slip into those dancing shoes and sign up the family for ballet, jazz, or hip-hop classes at Dream DanceNV. While it may not be your typical Las Vegas experience, you didn’t come here to be ordinary; you came here to have fun! Train with the pros, and who knows you might end up learning that you’re a better dancer than you thought you were. Remember, the world is your dance floor!
