Children’s parties in the park

Parties in the park

Are you ‘Wild about Westgate?’ If so, why not enjoy a birthday party with a difference!

Our children’s birthday parties offer fun filled activities in the beautiful Westgate Parks, Canterbury.

What do you get?

  • 10—15 minutes of wildlife themed party games
  • An hour long activity led by one of our outdoor learning team

Activities include:

  • River dipping (using nets to investigate the creatures of the Great Stour River) and identification through a game of bingo!
  • Geo-caching treasure trails – choose a theme of your choice (We have had Pokémon, dinosaur and Roman themed parties…just to mention a few!)  Use GPS handsets to navigate your way to hidden caches in the park, collect clues and race to the finish line!
  • Arts and crafts – Make clay hedgehogs, weave willow fish or create dragonflies …lots of options available using natural materials, a splash of paint and glitter!

We provide a template invitation for your guests

All staff are DBS checked / first aid qualified

Health and safety is covered but in a fun, informal way 🙂  All activities are risk assessed and available on request

Members of our wonderful Westgate Parks volunteer team may also be on hand to help

Cost: £99 for up to 15 children

Bespoke sessions are available on request for an additional cost, for example campfire cooking.

Suitable for ages 5+

After your party why not enjoy a picnic in the park and use the Toddler’s Cove play area
