Here at Northshore Parent we love a good birthday party. Some of us like big, Pinterest-worthy celebrations and others like smaller affairs. Either way, throwing a birthday party is a big undertaking and that’s why we’re here to help with this Birthday Party Guide. Find all the best places for hosting, entertainment, food, and more right here in this handy guide.

Birthday Parties at City Park

New Orleans City Park is the perfect place for your child’s next birthday party. Without digital screens or flashy trends, we offer a place everyone can enjoy together. Let the kids run and play in the sunshine under 100 year old oak trees. We offer fun and affordable parties for children of all ages. You can choose between private access to a single or multiple rides in the park, and have the choice of booking a private party house, indoor or outdoor locations inside Storyland, and/or two beautiful outdoor gazebos. Carousel Gardens Amusement Park has 17 rides including the treasured antique wooden carousel. We also offer Train Garden birthdays which include a ride on the Park’s mini train for all of the guests. And don’t forget about City Putt Miniature Golf! City Putt has two party rooms and your choice of courses: New Orleans or Louisiana. Party packages offered include food, drinks (for kids and adults), and can include decorations. You bring the kid and the cake and let us set up and clean up afterwards. You can visit our new website to see details and book or give us a call to ask questions and book. And don’t forget: birthday parties at New Orleans City Park are great for kids as well as the kids-at-heart!

City Park is the best place to have a party! When they say they take care of everything but the cake, they mean it! They even helped me get my son’s birthday presents to our car. The location was convenient with lots parking for my guests and the staff was very helpful. I booked my daughter’s next party before I left!” –Katie B.

Recently had my son’s fifth birthday party using the Jungle Hut. It was fantastic. We were running late as usual and the two party hosts helped set up and make everything perfect! They showed up at the right times to ensure pizza and cake were served. I had no worries throughout the day. I would highly recommend the zoo for any parties.” – Lauren L.
