How can I play at West Side Play Space?

There are three ways to play at West Side Play Space! You can become a member, use our drop-in option, or use our free Family Library Pass. (See below)  Please note that WSPS does not allow child drop-offs; children using the space must be supervised at all times by adult caregivers.

At West Side Play Space, all memberships are family memberships and cover all members of your immediate family. Membership costs $60 for 6 months, and allows unlimited use of WSPS during our entire season, November through April.  As a cooperative, each family is required to cover one volunteer shift per month so that we can maintain our full schedule of open hours (Monday: 9:00-12:00, Thursday: 3:00-6:00, Saturday: 1:00-5:00, Sunday 9:00-1:00).

There is also a $10 daily drop-in option. If you decide to join WSPS, the cost of your drop-in session can be credited toward a full membership.

WSPS has free Family Library Passes available for checkout from both the downtown and Olneyville branches of the Providence Public Library. These options are free, but visitors (as do all of our members) must sign a waiver of liability upon entry for themselves and their children in order to use the space.

WSPS is committed to making our space accessible to all; no family will be turned away for lack of funds.  WSPS has a limited number of subsidized memberships available and payment plans can be set-up for those who inquire.  Please note, however, that volunteer shift requirements cannot be waived. Please contact for more information.
