Indoor Trampoline Park Proposed for Murrieta

AeroSports seeks a minor conditional use permit in order to open an indoor trampoline park in a building on Avenida Acacias in Murrieta that formerly housed a furniture store.

An indoor amusement park featuring trampolines may open soon in Murrieta.

A public hearing is scheduled Thursday for AeroSports, which hopes to bring the family-oriented facility to a 34,000-square-foot space at 39729 Avenida Acacias, Suites A and B.

AeroSports owner John DeSouza will seek a minor conditional use permit during the public and city administrative hearing set to begin at 4 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 20 at Murrieta City Hall, 1 Town Square.

Murrieta city planners are recommending approval of the facility, which already has signage displayed at the space in the Murrieta Crossings Center, also known as Furniture Row to locals.

The center is no longer home to just furniture stores; in the past year Aces Comedy Club has opened up as has Brew-Ligion.

If approved, AeroSports would consist of open trampoline jump areas, trampoline arenas, foam pits, an arcade area, a snack bar and party rooms, according to a report prepared for the hearing.

The facility would be available to the public for rental on an hourly basis.

The trampoline arenas are designed for sports and league play for dodgeball, volleyball, basketball and similar activities.

AeroSports also proposes offering cardiovascular fitness classes available for a membership fee.

Its proposed hours of operations are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 10 to midnight Friday and Saturday.

"The facility's use, related to hours and operation characteristics, is a low-intensity use," wrote Assistant City Planner Aaron Rintamaki. "The trampoline park is compatible with the surrounding uses and will not alter the character of the existing commercial center."

The proposed business meets the city's zoning requirements for the center, according to Rintamaki, and there is ample parking—989 spaces—to accommodate patrons.

Murrieta would be the fourth location for AeroSports, which according to the company's website, has existing sites in Corona, Fresno and Maryland.

MJ, It will have a snack area with beer served, as does Chuck E Cheese....they will need a beer license at the least. This "Park" will be geared for teens and adults, another hangout for the town's misfits, fully equipted with video games for the teen to waste their minds on.

It is very interesting to read all of your comments. First off, this facility is going to be "FAMILY" focused. There is a whole seperate area for kids 4ft and under. Secondly, No alcohol will be served. Lastly, Anything that encourages kids to get out and do something physical besides frying brains on video games is ok in my book.

I enjoy all the comments on this page on how the city/business owners should be run. As a Murrieta small business owner, open your own business and be successful. Or...run for city council and make the changes. I love how people like to tell others, how to spend their money. Bruno, if you don't like it here...move. If you do, improve it. Bashing a new small business does no good. It hasn't even opened and your knocking it down already. Nice. Classic armchair naysayers. Easier to post than to do eh?

Alex, I agree and appreciate your comment. I am a local entrepreneur who is trying to open my own "family friendly business" because I feel that is exactly what our community needs right now. I think this trampoline park is a wonderful addition to the center and a welcomed addition to our community. I agree 100% with your comment about "anything that encourages kids to get out and do something physical besides frying brains on video games". Our kids now a days are getting lazy and uninvolved. I wish Aerosports all the luck in the world and I pray some of it falls in my direction as well. Ciao!

We are new to this community & hate paying these high property taxes & have to drive to Temecula or Menifee for better shopping/eating. Does anyone know what's going on with this Orchard shopping center that's not completed? I wish we would have done more homework before we purchased our home here.
