Looking for an unforgettable experience for your child’s next birthday celebration? Westwood Hills Nature Center has the perfect birthday party program for your child. Our birthday parties are two hours long and include a one-hour program led by a naturalist with a guided nature hike and live animal presentation, followed by another hour for gifts and food in a private party room for up to 12 children.

Westwood birthday parties are for children ages 4 and up. 

Onsite parking is not available due to construction of the new Westwood Hills Nature Center interpretive center. Street parking is available on West Franklin Avenue.


Guided nature hike

Experienced naturalists tailor the program to fit the ages and interests of the children. Birthday party hikes are designed around what is happening outside on the day of your party and during the season of your party.

Live animal presentation

Children have the chance to meet, see and touch one of the nature center’s live exhibit animals.

Private party room

Westwood provides a private room that includes tables and chairs. You are responsible for providing the birthday treats, tableware, party favors and decorations. There is a refrigerator, freezer and sink available for use.


$105 per party (residents), $115 (non-residents)

There is a limit of up to 12 children for a two-hour party. Additional children are $8 each (pre-arrangements must be made for additional children).
