Birthday Parties

 Nature birthday parties are fully booked through Sept.
Did you know that Naperville Park District birthday parties provide private and semi-private spaces and experiences?

In addition to providing a clean and healthy environment, our parties are conducted in spaces that are either entirely reserved for the party, or cordoned off from other activities that are taking place. And, there are maximum limits for each group to keep each party smaller in size. We also provide everything you need to make your event special for your child and easy for you including cupcakes from DeEtta's Bakery, staff-run activities, drinks, paper products and utensils and we clean up after your event. Register at any time; parties require a minimum two-week notice; nature parties require three weeks notice. Days/times are subject to availability.

To get your party experience started, submit your request or contact the Party Coordinator.

FAQ's

Gymnastics, Fort, & Sports, Lego, and Princess Parties are 1.5 hours long, 1 hour for the activity and 30-minutes, at the end, for the birthday child's adult host to supervise serving the cupcakes and drinks.

Nature Parties are 2 hours long, including 30-minutes, at the end, for the birthday child's adult host to supervise serving the cupcakes and drinks.

The parties are scheduled according to space availability and staff, but availability permitting you can add an extra 30 minutes for an additional $50.

You can arrive 10-15 minutes before the start of the party. The party host(s) will be there to assist you; set up must be done by the birthday child's parent/adult. We ask that the party area is packed up within 10 minutes of the party's completion.

You are able to bring in pizza, additional individually wrapped pre-packaged snacks and other drinks for your guests. No outside catering is permitted. The nature center has a refrigerator to store cold items. Other locations do not have a refrigerator to store cold items. No alcoholic beverages are permitted.

Due to space limitations, we ask that only a minimum number of parents stay. In order to ensure a fun and memorable party for the children, parents of guests are welcome to wait in the common areas of the Fort Hill Activity Center or in the nature center exhibit area and/or outside in the park.

For Fort Hill birthday parties everyone will meet in the party room (this will be signposted at the front desk on the day). Once all kids have arrived we will take them to the location of their activity for the first part of the party for approximately 1 hour.

After this we will head back to the party room for the last 30 minutes for pizza (if you choose to order) and cupcakes and drinks.

Parents can pick up from the same room they drop off at.

Start by filling in the Birthday Party Request form online and the Birthday Party Coordinator will respond with availability on requested dates.

A week before your party the Party Coordinator will send you a form so you can let them know final numbers of guests and your cupcake order (flavor of cupcakes and choice of color sprinkles) as well as any additional cupcakes (for $1.50 each!).  

The party area can be decorated, but no decorations can hang from the ceiling. Glue, tacks and tape are not permitted on the walls or windows. You can provide balloons that can be tied to a chair or table, or tabletop decorations. Balloons are not allowed during nature birthday parties. If you would like to purchase specific theme-related tablecloths, our tables are 6' in length.

We provide you with delicious birthday cupcakes from DeEtta's Bakery.  

We will provide you with white plates, cups, napkins and utensils. If you would like themed plates, cups, and napkins, you are welcome to provide those.

The only type of piñata we can allow is the “pull string” piñata. For safety reasons, we will not allow piñatas that require swinging an item to break it open.

The signed contract and party payment are due within seven (7) days of placing the hold. Parties cancelled up to two weeks prior to the party date will receive a 50% refund, or be rescheduled for a fee of $25. Anything less than two weeks' notice is non-refundable.
