Birthday Parties at Bronte Creek Provincial Park

Birthday Parties
Bronte Creek Provincial Park is a great place to host a birthday party! I have listed a few themes and suggestions on how to host a birthday party at the park.

Limitations
We have the space and in some cases the facilities for you to run a party for kids or adults. We do not have group rates or packages. We do not have designated staff available to attend to your specific group.

Organizers of the party can pre-pay for Daily Vehicle Permits (DVP) for their guests. With at least 2 weeks notice you can call the park to arrange to pay and pick up the non-refundable date stamped DVP's. It is your responsibility to distribute the DVP's to your guests prior to them arriving at the front gate. If they arrive without their DVP they will be required to pay for their own DVP. Please call 905-827-6911 (M-F 8:30am - 4:30pm) at least 2 weeks before your party date.

General tips

  • Post directional signs to your meeting place. Use BIG, BOLD printing "Joe's Party". Post these signs on the white board below the green parking lot signs.
  • Blue's Clues---use paw prints to direct guests.
  • Make cupcakes and decorate the top---easier to distribute to kids.
  • Order pizza for PICK-up or deliver TO THE FRONT GATE. Delivery trucks will not be permitted past the gate.
  • Pin the tail on the donkey, barn tours, feed the goats, 'farmer' bandanas for each guest.
  • Visit the nature centre or Spruce lane farmhouse when open.---check when you pick up your DVP's
  • Have lots of juice or water on hand in warm weather. ---freezies etc.
  • Paper towel, wet wipes, garbage bag, wagon (to transport gear).
  • Balloons, streamers etc. can be used to decorate your area. Please remove upon your departure.
  • Bounce houses, caterers, clowns etc. are allowed---they will need DVP's.

The rink area offers heated change rooms, skate rentals, music and snack bar. There is an outdoor gathering area around the bonfire that is perfect for enjoying your hot chocolate. The snack bar does not reserve table areas or skates. All guest vehicles must obtain and display a daily vehicle permit.

Let the guide know who the birthday person is and they will be able to participant in a special maple tradition. Tables are not reserved.
