Birthday Parties

Get the party started!

Celebrate your child’s birthday with Winnetka Park District, and let us do ALL the work!

Affordable & easy 90-minute parties include:

  • A party coordinator to facilitate the entire party from start to finish
  • Access to the gym and party room with tables/chairs
  • A decorated cake, drinks, and themed plates/napkins
  • Cups, candles, forks
  • Lots of fun!

We’re here to make your child’s day a special one, but any “extra” decorations such as balloons or goody bags are your responsibility. Otherwise, all you need to do is supply us with the birthday boy/girl and we’ll take care of the rest!

Fees range from $245 – $425, and are based on 20 children in attendance. Any children over the allotment are $5 each. For an additional fee, an extra 30 minutes is available upon advanced request.

Call (847) 501-2040 to book your party today!

Don’t wait to secure your preferred date!  Parties book early, often, and are taken on a first-come first-serve basis.  We recommend making your reservation at least 3 weeks in advance, but even if you’re looking for something last minute give us a call and we’ll see if we can accommodate your request.


Arts & Crafts

Children will create an art project based on the theme of your choice for the party (e.g., beads, decorated flower pots). The completed project makes a great party favor. When the kids are finished with the craft they will move to the gym for some fun and games.

Sports & Games (Most Popular Option!)

What is your favorite sport? We can play them all – basketball, floor hockey, soccer, you name it. Just let us know which ones you like and we will have a “ball!”  If specific sports aren’t of interest, we have an ever-growing list of fun games and activities and a huge closet full of equipment to keep the kids faces pink.  This is NOT open gym; staff will lead the kids in their favorite games or play classics that get them moving.  This is also a great option for flexible theme ideas.
