The Robert W. Depke Juvenile Justice Complex/Minard E. Hulse Juvenile Detention Center features a lobby complete with unsupervised children’s play area. The play area includes three wall-mounted play boards, two stationary play cubes, four beanbag chairs, and a brightly colored children's carpet. A welcoming handmade quilt hangs on the wall.
In addition, books appropriate for all ages are available in the play area for children to read. Parents are also encouraged to help a child to choose a book to take home.
