Outdoor Birthday Parties

Greenway Outdoor Birthday Parties

The Anne Springs Close Greenway offers a variety of birthday party options for children of all ages!  We strive to get kids outside and closer to nature while introducing them to a number of educational and recreational activities. Complete the birthday request form below to get started!

I Spy Animals

Ages 3+

Snakes, Turtles, and Bugs, oh my!

With live reptile encounters and animal-themed games and crafts, this party option is great for your budding naturalist!

Creek Hike

Ages 3+

If your little one is ready for a watery adventure, try this party option. We’ll take a short hike to Steele Creek to splash around and walk across the swinging bridge then return to the Nature Center and check out a few of our resident live reptiles.

Lead-Line Rides

Ages 3+

Parties offered September-May

Celebrate with two hours of lead-line horse rides, craft time, and a visit to see miniature horses, goats, and Rosie the pig!

Survivor Kids

Ages 5+

For the true “outdoorsy” kids, nothing says fun like building forts in the woods, navigating the forest to hunt for hidden treasure, and making a campfire!


Ages 8+

No matter how old you are, bows and arrows are cool! Our instructors will provide the basics of archery safety and skills that each kid needs to feel like a young Hawkeye or Katniss Everdeen.


Ages 8+

A classic of outdoorsmanship, fishing is a great way to bond with friends and family! We’ll practice casting, baiting a hook, and learn what kinds of fish we might catch in our local waterways!


Ages 8+

With a kids’ kayak clinic and a scenic tour of the lake, we’ll provide the equipment, knowledge, and experience so your party can hit the water.

Trail Rides

Ages 8+

Parties offered September-May

Celebrate with a one-hour trail ride followed by one hour access to the covered hanger for cake, food, presents, games and much more. 

Make your child's birthday extra special by participating in our Symbolic Adoption program.
