Party in the Children’s Garden!

From December, visitors will be able to book a special space in the Children’s Garden for private celebrations!

The new Gathering Lawn area – created thanks to a generous donation from The Ian Potter Foundation – has shady trees, a water feature, and plenty of green space to run, jump and play.

The area is available for hire on Saturdays and Sundays only, with three two-hour sessions available to book. Choose from 10am – 12 noon, 12.30 – 2.30pm, or 3 – 5pm.

From early 2015, the Gardens will be offering a range of children’s birthday party packages. The Gathering Lawn is the perfect spot to gather for a fun themed birthday party and, best of all, the parties are hosted by our professional Programs Officers so parents can relax and enjoy the party, too!

Choose from Teddy Bears Picnic (0-3 years), Garden Fairy Party (4-8 years) or Dinosaur Stomp Party (4-8 years). Packages include:

- 2 hours’ exclusive use of the Gathering Lawn
- 1 hour of fun, nature-based activities with songs, dance and games
- A birthday gift for the birthday boy or girl
- Teepees and tunnels to play in
- Delicious food boxed by Blakes Feast Catering

Optional extras such as birthday cake and food platters for adults are also available.
