The Gardens on Spring Creek invites you to host your youth birthday party at The Gardens. Our unique facility offers a fun, botanic experience for our young guests. Come bloom with us!
Host your next party in our Children’s Garden. The Green Roof shelter is reserved for the party and all activities are matched to age of the child. During the winter, parties will be scheduled in the classroom.
Birthday party packages are only available on Saturdays or Sundays. Packages are 90 minutes in length. Please note that you are allowed 15 minutes before the party for setup and 15 minutes after the party for cleanup at no additional charge. This brings the total time for rental to 2 hours (90 minutes for party, 30 minutes for setup and cleanup in total).
A Gardens birthday party costs $200 and includes activities for up to 10 children. We cannot accommodate more than 10 children. With your birthday party package, you will receive:
The applicant is responsible to bring their own paper products, utensils, food and beverages.
Accommodations: We are happy to accommodate and modify activities to meet the needs of different ages and physical abilities.
11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
2 – 3:30 p.m.
Once a birthday party reservation has been made, the applicant may cancel the reservation, by calling 970.416.2486. Cancellations must be made at least 72 hours (three days) in advance of the party for a refund. Failure to do so results in the forfeiture of the entire birthday party package payment.
In the event of inclement weather, The Gardens will NOT be responsible for providing an alternate space. There may be a possibility of moving the event to the indoor Classroom, but this is not a guarantee.
