Donald Ross Village is a small shopping plaza with attractive landscaping and design. It's fun for kids to walk around because there are sculptures of kids climbing a ladder, swinging on a tire, lounging on a chair with a cat and book, and playing ring around the rosie.
The outdoor bar area at Burger Bar is gorgeous, with a large fountain, hanging mini-fountains, bougainvillea atop archways, and tiled columns. There's usually a small, groovy crowd there around 5pm and later.
On Tuesday nights, Hurricane Grill hosts a kids night. Kids eat free and there's a face painter/balloon artist who works for free (tips welcome) while you eat, from 5:30-8:30pm. It makes it easy to eat your meal while your child is entertained. On the other hand, there's a lot of buzz so it's not a peaceful meal! Your kids will feel like they went to a birthday party, which is a nice way to break up the school week. It's best to come early, at 5:30, or the wait is long for the face painting/balloons.
Grande Italian Cucina has delicious prosciutto and arugula pizzettas! Ask for them to make it fresh. And the seating outside is nice.
There are many more upscale restaurants in this plaza, plus a yummy icecream shop called Ashdan's Yogurt.
A short drive away you can take a nice walk in the Abacoa Greenway. Or bring your kids to Cambridge Playground.

|The owner kicked us out of the plaza for having a skateboard in our hands|
|I'm sorry- I don't know. But I will try to see if they are signed by an artist next time I'm there and post it.|
