The Domes at Home

Although you can’t come to the Domes right now, the Friends of the Domes has created this page to bring the Domes to you.

Each week we will add pages that can be colored any way you like to help learn more about The Domes.

We hope you are all doing well and enjoying some family time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Mitchell Park Domes in the near future. Visit this page often as activities will be updated often.
