Our Learning team offers a range of exciting led outdoor activities including discovering bugs, birds and water creatures and making nature-inspired crafts. Choose your activity to make your child’s next birthday party a truly memorable experience!

Celebrate your child’s special day with us at Morden Hall Park

You will have exclusive use of the ground floor Groves Room inside the Snuff Mill  Learning Centre, with tables for you to decorate. Bring your own food, or our lunch boxes can be provided for an extra fee.

Suitable for ages 3–11. Parties last 2 hours and are available from 11am–1pm or 2pm–4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and on weekday evenings. The Groves Room will be available for set up half an hour prior to the party, and half an hour after for clear up. Your party will be led by one of our Learning team for 1.5 hours, and then you will be left to enjoy your chosen snacks or meal inside or outside for the final half hour.

Choose your favourite party theme and become wildlife explorers, inspired by our beautiful park with the River Wandle at its heart.

Party themes:

  • Minibeast detectives – take a magnifying glass and look carefully around the woodland and grassland of the park to seek out small creatures and discover how they live.
  • River explorers (for ages 5+) – get up close to river minibeasts as you carefully use a net to catch them from the water, find out more about them, and put them safely back.
  • Bird trails and trees – use binoculars to spot some of the amazing land and water birds that call our park home. Listen for the squawk of green parakeets and quacking mallards, and you may even see the blue flash of a kingfisher or seasonal visitors like the little egret. Meet some of the park’s trees through exciting activities.
  • Wild art - Create themed art and crafts using natural materials.


Please note, seasonal variations to the activities may apply, and all dates are subject to availability.
