BLOG 16 Jessica and Daniel Walker of Jumble District

I have used Jumble District over this last year as a means to get work done and let kids get active and have fun, balancing the mom guilt with business building. In those visits I was able to see the family coming together behind the scenes, I saw Jessica’s mom in the kitchen, I saw Daniel manning the floor and setting the standard for the engagement needed at the climbing walls, trampolines and so forth. Meanwhile Jessica comes out from the office after completing the administration for HR, payroll, accounts receivable and payable and other fun stuff that sounds overwhelming just writing it. As I work away on my laptop I witness exactly why I knew I had to have them in the directory. Malachi and Delaih come running up to their mom and dad, red faced and speaking a mile a minute and I see exactly why they poured themselves into this business. They want families to connect, to do things together and have fun! They are living what they made their purpose. Their kids play hockey and they both stressed outside of hockey they need to stay active and have fun or else they just resort to screen time. They were aware of this challenge and wanted to create a space to fill that need. Boy did they fill that need! The space is 24101 square feet, 11000 of that is trampoline park, 5 climbing wall, a four level play structure and a Toddler District. There are 5 private rooms to accomodate birthday parties and a 4 person air hockey game central to the tables by the food counter. My kids go hours and hours and I have to stop feeding them for them to be ready to finally go. In getting to know Jessica and Daniel I can see the commitment they have to the community as they see the need for more things to do in Airdrie for teens, and adults for that matter. Watch for their monthly regular after hours Teen’s Nights and my favorite, dodgeball night. I believe we have an untapped resource in our city as schools could be using Jumble District to fill some of the outings and reward events for our kids. Support local isn’t about location but about dedication to making Airdrie and area better and Jumble District is definitely a local gem.
