Children's Birthday Parties
Be green with a sustainable birthday party for your child at the Gardens. The birthday child and his or her friends will explore the Gardens and learn about plants in exciting ways. We provide everything you need to make your party a success, while minimizing impact on our planet. All you need to bring is your child’s favorite food.
Birthday parties take place on weekday afternoons and during the day on Saturdays and Sundays. Children’s birthday parties are held in the Morrison Discovery Center located at the north end of the Mordecai Children’s Garden. The Morrison Discovery Center has a maximum capacity of 45 people. A minimum of three weeks advance reservation is required. Our basic, planting or deluxe birthday party packages are designed for children up to 14 years old. Visit our private events pages to learn about space rentals in the main Gardens for older youth and adult parties.
