We all want to give our children a birthday to remember, and the City of Arlington can help. The City offers a variety of fantastic birthday party options from puppy-themed to pickleball.

Here are just a few choices:

Arlington Parks & Recreation

Bubble Soccer at Elzie Odom Athletic Center (Ages 7+)

  • If you've never seen bubble soccer — it's a hit. Children put on inflatable bubble costumes and hit the field for a guaranteed day of fun.

Rock Climbing Part at Elzie Odom Athletic Center

  • Take your party to new heights with a day of indoor rock climbing. 

Skate Party at Elzie Odom Athletic Center

  • Lace up your skates and hit the track!

Footgolf Party at Meadowbrook Park Golf Course

  • FootGolf is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf. Instead of golf clubs and golf balls, the game is played with a soccer ball and a 21-inch diameter cup. Give it a shot!

Pool Party at Hugh Smith Recreation Center

  • You can't go wrong with a classic.

Aqua Stand-Up Party with Arlington Aquatics at Hugh Smith Indoor Pool

  • Put your balance to the test or get ready to make a splash at this surf-inspired party.

Pickleball Party at Arlington Tennis Center

  • Pickleball combines the best elements of tennis, badminton and ping pong into a one-of-a-kind game. And there's no better place to learn.

Rent a Pontoon Boat at Lake Arlington

  • What's better than a day on the water? Pack a lunch and come rent a pontoon boat from Lake Arlington. 

Park Party

  • ​Let your young athletes work off that extra energy with an open gym party, available at a recreation center near you.

Arlington Public Library

The George W. Hawkes Downtown Arlington Public Library is a great spot to host your next party. The library's meeting rooms can be rented for private events. There will be an additional fee to bring food. You'll also need a library card to book the room (but think of all the great services you'll have access to now!) Many families rent the room to coordinate with one of the library's pre-planned events such as crafting activities or storytime.

We can't wait to celebrate with you!
