Sit back, relax and let the Glenview Park District party staff handle everything!

Party lengths are typically an hour and a half (2 hours for pool parties).

Room times may be extended for additional fees (dependent on availability).

Each package includes the party activity, games and two party leaders (unless otherwise noted). All other party items (invitations, goody bags, food and paper goods) are the responsibility of the party host.

Maximum of 30 children (unless otherwise noted).

Additional guests and additional time may be added beyond the maximum stated for additional fees, if time and space allow.

Full payment is required 7 days after booking.

Each birthday child celebrating with a Pick-a-Party or Splash Landings Party will receive a Park Center Birthday Party T-shirt. The price of the T-shirt is included in the cost of the party!
