On Saturday, the Empire Mall in Sioux Falls unveiled a brand new play area.
The 1,400 square-foot play area, located between the Food Court and Sears, is sponsored by Sanford Health. It has five new play pieces, including a rocket ship and a replica of Sanford Children's Hospital Castle of Care.
In addition to the new play pieces, the area will include interactive play panels, games, and a musical keyboard.
The new play area is one of several changes to be unveiled during The Empire's yearlong renovation. Other recent improvements include updated restrooms and the reopening of the east side of the main entrance.
Construction is scheduled to conclude in November.
