An RKF restaurant, that is.
And it was an important one to us.
The McDonald’s in Navasota, Texas remodeled their establishment and did away with the playscape and play area. This was a huge shock and disappointment to all three of us.
This McDonald’s is a routine pit stop on our route to visit relatives. It’s at the half-way point and after an hour of being strapped in, this stop is a necessity for Boe (as well as, myself and DH). We had driven by a few times during their remodel anticipating a great new indoor play area. This was the reason for the huge shock. We had built it up in our heads.
They removed the playscape and fencing and put cement tables on an open slab in its place. What a waste. I can’t imagine anyone using those tables. This McDonald’s location is off the equivalent of an interstate so outside of the building is it really loud. Also, this is in Texas so sitting-outside weather totals about 20 days annually. Being that only the desperate would ever dine outside in those conditions (with a playscape, of course), I doubt those tables will ever be used.
We need more restaurants with play areas, not less!
