Twin Cities Birthday Parties for Kids: Party in the Park

Birthday Parties in Parks

Don’t discount park birthday parties at your local community center, nature center or park! Should your kid be blessed with a birthday month that begs for some outdoor fun, most options are very reasonable price-wise. Most have reservable, covered spaces to gather for gift openings and goodies, and often kids are perfectly entertained with playground equipment. If a little more direction or theme is desired, nature centers offer naturalist-led programs during birthday parties and options for organized indoor/outdoor activities.

Thanks so much to Lynn’s Cake and Candy Supplies for sponsoring the 2019 Birthday Party Guide in the Twin Cities.

Lynn’s Cake and Candy Supply

7213 University East Service Road, Fridley, MN 55432
This is our favorite place to get all our birthday cake supplies. They know what they are doing and have helped me through a more than one tragedy. Lynn’s offers the perfect party for any skill level. This is a fun environment where each participant will learn how to fill a cupcake with delicious filling, then learn some fun decorating techniques with a piping bag and tip.  Wait until you see their faces when they learn how to pipe out 3 colors at once! The group will then use those new skills to decorate their very own 4 cupcakes with our buttercream frosting. Each attendee will leave with their 4 cupcakes safely stored in a clear plastic container and the excitement to do more at home!
Limited to 8 participants, $20/child (excluding the adult chaperone). $50 deposit required. Parties are 60-75 minutes; please schedule your party at least 3 weeks in advance.

Community Centers

Give your local community or recreation center a call to see what they offer in the way of party room space and outdoor amenities. This can be a wonderful way to save money; room rentals can start as low as $30 per hour and there’s no charge to take advantage of playground facilities outside.
