Best Places for a Kid’s Birthday Party in Tri Cities – Stacy Lee’s Top Five
The Tri Cities is a wonderful place to raise kids. When it comes to children’s birthday parties there are several options that come to mind. I’ve compiled a list of the Top 5 of my favorites in no particular order.
My birthday is in June so when I was a kid my birthday was always outdoors and at a park. Tri Cities has an abundance of beautiful parks. Some of my favorites include Highlands Grange park in Kennewick which has a small water park, outdoor hockey rink, and beautiful gardens. Also in Kennewick and right on the shores of the “Mighty ” Columbia River is Columbia Park, which is home to the PlayGround Of Dreams, kids fishing pond and even a duck pond. Watch out for the geese as they can be aggressive. Also located on the shores of the river in Richland is Howard Amon park,where there’s something for everyone from bike paths to a unique play ground that has rock climbing and a zip line. Another favorite in Richland is Goethals Park which just re-opened and features a natural type playground, that was designed and renovated by our local community. Grab a piñata, water balloons , a cooler, and don’t forget the birthday cake..Parties in the park are affordable and memorable.
Pamper your little princess with the Monkey Dooz salon party. You can choose from several diffrent packages depending on the size and type of party you want. There’s everything from dress up fun, to mani’s & pedi’s and even tea parties. Don’t worry little brothers can be included to as a Pirate or Knight.
Visit the Monkey Dooz website for complete party package details.
Rollarena Skating center
There’s always good old fashion rollerskating. Rollarena Skating Center has been serving Tri-City families for over 50 years. They even have skating lessons for people of all ages and abilities. There are two ways to go either a public session with a minimum of 8 skaters or private session with a minimum of 20 skaters.
There is the alternative to “The Same Old Party”, indoor ice skating. It is a fun and active option for kids of all ages. There are two ice rinks in Tri Cities that have public skate times, TRAC in Pasco and Toyota Arena in Kennewick.Depending on the time of year will determine which one will work for you.
The ice rink in Pasco is located behind the TRAC facility and is open from mid-March to September the pavilion is also available for rent for small functions. Check the public ice shedule for skate times and cost. For more information call (509) 947-4828.
For year round ice skating parties try Toyota Arena. They offer a birthday package that includes: a private party room, skates and admission, food and beverages all for just $15 per person with an 8 person minimum.
Chuck E. Cheese
Of course Chuck E. Cheese is an all time favorite and they have recently upgraded the games. They offer complete birthday party packages, where they do it all, to the do it yourself party.
My top 5 will probably change soon when the new indoor water park opens at Tri Cities Court Club. Not to mention the new water parks that are slated to open next year.
So what are some of your favorite kid birthday sites in Tri Cities?
