Birthday Party Packages

Book your child's next birthday party with the Arlington Heights Park District and let us do the work - your child will love the party, and you'll love the convenience!   

We supply the activities, equipment, and a party host to help with set up, clean up, and other party needs, and a professional instructor to lead themed activities. We don't supply food or beverages. However, if you'd like to bring a cake or other snacks, just include that information when you register, and the host will help serve treats in the last 20 minutes of the party. Please be aware, an adult with the party must be present at all times during the party.

Registration opens approximately two months in advance and closes two weeks before each party date. Party dates, times, locations, and themes may not be changed. Available dates fill up quickly, so please book early!

  • Payment is due in full at the time of reservation and includes a non-refundable $75 booking fee.
