This fun-filled event has become the most highly attended of the Parties for the Park series, selling out well in advance each year.

Adults: $15
Children: $7.50

More Parties To Be Announced!

December 31

We are still finalizing the details on a few more parties, so keep checking back for more party announcements. In the meantime, check out these fantastic parties!

The funds raised through Parties for the Park make up about 1/3 of DCP Inc.’s annual operating budget. The money pays for DCP staff, maintenance and improvements of park structures, free programming and special projects. Your support of the park helps to enhance and preserve this wonderful urban greenspace for everyone to enjoy!

Thank you so much for your support!
