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 at the PNC Achievement Center in Beckley Creek Park just steps away from the splash park fun of the Marshall Playground & 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. Guests will get a cane pole to use while fishing along Floyds Fork. All participants over 15 years of age are required to have a Kentucky state fishing license. 

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.


Classroom (No Ranger Activity): $150

Ranger Activity: $75/Parklands Members; $100/Non-Members
