Pool & Arena Sleepover Parties

Ages 7+. Up to 24 children.

Want to try something different for your child’s birthday this year? After everyone has gone home and the Strathcona Gardens has closed its doors to the public, we invite children to join us for some overnight fun. Drop the children off for some late night skating, swimming, lazer tag, sports, relay races and games – 13.5 hours of total fun! The weary party goers will wind down to a movie with popcorn and then sleep in one of our activity rooms waking up to a light breakfast all ready for you to pick them up.

We will look after your party goers from 8:30pm until 10:00am the next morning and can take up to 24 children. Two weeks notice is required to book this event.

Cost: $550 per party
