Birthday Parties

Looking for a place to host a children’s birthday party?

Ask about rental of one of our state-of-the-art classrooms in the PNC Achievement Center, where you’re only steps away from getting wet in our Playground and Sprayground, a family favorite. And, if you’re up for an adventure, we make your child’s party truly unique by including one of the play experiences below, led by one of our Interpretive Rangers!


Creek Exploration:
Get ready to get your feet wet! We provide the nets and help identify the many critters that call Floyds Fork home.

Trail Hike:
Our trained Interpretive Staff leads your group on an age-appropriate expedition on one of our many trails, exploring the dynamic habitat of our park.

Fishing Party:
Experienced or not, this adventure promises fun for all, as our trained Interpretive Staff guides your group through all you need to know about fishing from baits to sinkers. All participants over 15 years of age are required to have a Kentucky state fishing license. 

Wildflowers & Butterflies:
Excite your senses as we explore our gardens in search of butterflies and other pollinators. This birthday adventure works best when our pollinator garden is in bloom, between April & September.

Nature Detectives:
Unravel some of the mysteries of our natural landscape as we investigate questions such as: Where are the mammoths? Why the long face Mr. Heron? What lives in the wetland?

Inside Activities:
Don’t let the chance of inclement weather get you down; we have loads of activities to keep your party guests entertained indoors if it is stormy on the day of your party. Indoor topic options include: wildlife of The Parklands, bug explorers, rocks & fossils, or flower investigators.

Call (502)584-0350 or email us at today to begin planning your party in The Parklands!
