Park District offers different birthday party options

Winter options include nature- and outdoors-themed events at Atwood and Lockwood parks

Many Rockford Park District facilities (including museums) offer options for unusual and memorable fun-filled birthday parties year ’round.

During the fall and winter months, consider a nature-themed party at Atwood Park Lodge, exploring Playworld indoor playground, or old-fashioned fun on the farm, offered weekends at Lockwood Park (weather permitting).

Other parties with sports and play activities include indoor ice skating at Carlson Arctic Ice Arena or Riverview Ice House, a combination ice skating/Playworld package, and indoor court rentals for soccer, volleyball, and basketball at Indoor Sports Center.

Facility staff does the work and clean-up.
