Goodbye empty store front, hello giant trampoline park.
Oswego Village Board Trustees approved a special-use permit Aug. 21 allowing the Altitude Trampoline Park to occupy vacant commercial space in the Gerry Centennial Plaza shopping center that once served as the location of a Bed, Bath & Beyond store.
According to its website, Altitude was founded in 2012 and is “the fastest-growing trampoline park company in the world.”
Parks have been opened on three continents and in cities across the globe including Skokie and Bloomington. Oswego is their next venture.
The proposed indoor park will include several trampoline areas, party rooms, tables, concessions and an area for check-ins.
Since the location is zoned B-3 commercial, a special-use permit was required to move the project forward. Trustees happily approved the request.
“I’m just excited,” trustee Ryan Kaufman said about the park coming to town. “I’ve got two toddlers, and I can’t wait to ship them off!”
Gerry Centennial Plaza is located at the southeast corner of Douglas Road and Route 34.
