Celebrate your child’s birthday at the Garden!

Invite your party guests to relax and explore one of our three invigorating Gardens, while celebrating your child’s big day. Led by a Garden instructor, children ages 3 to 12 enjoy a fun seasonal craft, potting up activity and scavenger hunt through one of our Gardens. Treat your guests to mouthwatering pizza from Arthur Avenue’s Little Italy as well as bottled water and organic juices. All paper goods and party materials are provided. The only detail you are responsible for is the cake, if desired. Let us take care of the dirty work, as you create memories with your family and friends. Finally, your guests are granted the ultimate party favor, access to all Garden exhibitions and programs that are open to the public on the date of party.

Everett Children’s Adventure Garden

April – October (Saturdays or Sundays, mornings or afternoons)

The famous Children’s Garden offers a memorable environment for a fantastic nature party on Adventure Point. Located above the vivacious waterfall, Adventure Point houses a private, tented area to enjoy beautiful Garden views while learning about its elements. A scavenger hunt entertains party guests as they search for Garden hidden clues.

Ruth Rea Howell Family Garden

April – October (Sundays from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm)

If digging in the dirt is more your style, the Family Garden is the perfect choice. Party guests have the entire garden to themselves as they learn about gardening techniques from around the world. Fresh basil is pulled from the ground to the lunch plate topping off the pizza, and showing guests how to grow their own herb garden.

Conservatory Green School

November – March (Saturdays or Sundays, mornings or afternoons)

Cold weather birthdays are housed in a secret spot right below the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Guests indulge in a viewing of our popular Holiday Train Show exhibition before venturing to the Green School for crafts and games. Springtime guests head through A World of Plants to uncover tropical mysteries.
