If you’re raising kids in Frisco, you’ve surely been invited to a birthday party at Jump Zone, Urban Air, Main Event, or another similar venue. If you’re not ready to brave a birthday party at home (complete with blue frosting in your tile grout), we have you covered.
In addition to Frisco’s extensive list of brand-name party venues, here are five lesser-known venues you should know about.
The Carousel at Stonebriar Mall
It’s a little-known secret that you can reserve the Carousel at Stonebriar Centre. For $150, it is all yours (with certain time of day restrictions). The children will enjoy unlimited rides and the privilege of their own Carousel for a day.
The carousel makes a great location for parties without renting it, as well. The mall allows patrons to group together tables from the food court to create a party. Feel free to bring your tablecloths, party supplies, balloons, food, and cake, and set up right near the Carousel. Clean up is a breeze. Consider the option of purchasing 2-3 carousel rides for each guest (they’ve been known to give a group rate if you purchase 20+ rides at once.)
Bonus: The Disney Store is right across from the Carousel. They’ll give your birthday boy or girl a special badge to wear for their big day.
Frisco Commons Park
With 64 acres of beautiful lawn, Frisco Commons Park is a fantastic location for an outdoor party. With 2 award-winning playgrounds and a large pond, the park is a party-in-a-box (so to speak).
Make a reservation for one of five covered picnic areas, including the Grand Pavilion overlooking the pond. The park offers ample space for games, fishing, and grilling. Party activities are a breeze – bring balls, sidewalk chalk, or simply enjoy Hope Park, Friendship Park and/or the Splash Pad. Reservations are not required, but necessary to guarantee the space for your event. Reservations are free for Frisco residents.
City of Frisco Fire Stations
“When I grow up, I want to be a fireman!” Children look up to our heroic Frisco firefighters, as they should. Our fire department hosts children’s birthday parties at each of the fire stations. The fire fighters and first responders will provide education and fun for your little ones. The party includes a tour of the fire station, a close-up look at the equipment, and safety tips designed just for them.
“Sports City USA” Birthday Packages
They said Frisco was the “best place to raise an athlete” so it’s no surprise that our local, professional teams have options to celebrate a child’s birthday.
