Keystone Kidspace ground breaking ceremony marks new life for historic York Armory

The York Armory will soon have a brand new look.

On Friday, Sept. 27 residents and elected officials gathered for the ceremonial groundbreaking on the Keystone Kidspace, an interactive educational facility set to revive the former site of the York Armory.

Co-founder Jennifer Tansey likened the space to the Exploratorium in San Francisco. Adding that once completed the space will feature messy art, robotics and several interactive stations and workshops aimed at enhancing youth creativity.

“We want children to reconnect with those skills,” said Tansey. “[We’re] getting back to the skills they usually use.”

The $6 million project will create a brand new look for the 106-year-old Armory and is expected to be a cornerstone for the Northwest Triangle restoration. Keystone Kidspace is scheduled to open 2020.
