Have fun and eat your cake too when you plan your next birthday party at one of the great St. Charles Park District facilities. Whether you are looking for a celebration filled with games and activities or a quiet area for art and crafts, there is plenty of space to gather safely with friends and family and celebrate your special day.
With the St. Charles Park District, there are several facilities to consider for your event. In addition to various venues, staff can provide support, from setting up for games or craft a birthday theme. Venue rentals are can be reserved by both residents and nonresidents, with fees based on residency and room size availability.
At Sportsplex reserve space on one of the turf fields and invite guests to enjoy a birthday game of indoor soccer, dodge ball or even T-Ball. The large indoor space provides plenty of room for guests to enjoy games while not having to worry about weather. With a birthday party rental, guests can enjoy 60 minutes of play on the field, Sportsplex Supervisor Cayla Greenfield.
“People can choose all sorts of sports. We offer equipment for soccer, dodgeball, flag football, t-ball, kickball and wiffle ball,” Greenfield said.
There’s plenty of spaces and places available throughout the District. Pottawatomie Community Center, for example, can provide different size rooms since the multi-purpose rooms can be divided by the number of people in your party.
If your child loves animals, consider a Critter Exploration adventure or Dino Bash, two of the party themes staff can provide at the Hickory Knolls Discovery Center. Let your guests young and old learn more about some of the wonderful animals that call the center home and even have some up close interaction too.
Through October parties can be scheduled at Primrose Farm where you and guests can enjoy the serenity of the spacious farm and even take a few selfies safely with the resident farm animals.
Or host a private charter aboard the Fox River with one of the park district’s Paddlewheel Riverboats. A scenic cruise on the river is a great way to enjoy time together. There is open air and covered seating available so cruising is available rain or shine.
And for those with summer birthdays, consider reserving space for a party at Otter Cove Aquatic Park, Swanson Pool or the River View Miniature Golf Course next year.
