The 5 Best Things to Do With Kids in Catonsville - Trampoline Park

#1. Bounce all day at Get Air Catonsville

Get Air Catonsville is an amazing trampoline park – and it’s packed with fun play structures. Choose from wall-to-wall trampolines, foam pits, ninja obstacles and more, or play dodgeball, slamball or another heart-pounding game. There’s a “kiddie court” for little ones under 46 inches tall, and at some times, the whole trampoline park is dedicated to children that size. There are also allotted times for jumpers with special needs, too, and on Friday and Saturday nights, you can go to “Club Air,” which is a dance party on the trampolines.

You can hike, fish, camp, go canoeing, ride a horse or just have a picnic. You’ll find more than 70 miles of maintained trails (and an additional 130 of unmaintained trails), playgrounds, special events designed just for kids and so much more in the park. It’s open from 9 a.m. to sunset every day.
