Children’s Birthday Parties

Celebrate your child’s special day with a nature-themed birthday party at Royal Botanical Gardens! All Birthday Party programming takes place in the Nature Interpretive Centre, at RBG’s Arboretum, 16 Old Guelph Road, Hamilton Ontario. Enjoy a safe – and exciting – morning or afternoon with your friends and family! 

What’s Included

  • 1 RBG Attendant to lead activities for your party, as well as assist you with setup and clean up
  • RBG Birthday Party Invitations are included for you to send to your guests
  • A memorable and fun experience for children ages 3 to 13 years old!

Customize your party by bringing your own food, cake, plates, cups, and utensils. For safety, we request that all food brought to RBG for your party be wrapped in individual portions, and that participants refrain from sharing food where possible.
