Birthday Parties

Many of our parks are ideal locations for an outdoor-themed birthday party.  Rent one of our many picnic shelters to share the ice cream and cake and use the great outdoors as the back drop for your next celebrations.  Many of our parks have playgrounds, boat rentals, hiking and nature trails, swimming areas and so much more for kids to enjoy.

The Wild Side

Behind the Scenes of the Animal ForestTake a special tour behind the scenes of the Charles Towne Landing Animal Forest to see what our zookeepers do to care for the animals. We’ll start with a visit to the Animal Forest kitchen where you will see what our animals eat and how we prepare their food. While we’re there, you will be able to help make enrichment items that keep our animals busy and healthy. Next, you will get to see the animals, up close and personal, eat the enrichment items you just made!

When you make the reservation, please specify which animal you would like to make enrichment items for, either black bears, pumas or otters.

  • Group Size - 15 max
  • One adult for every 5 children required on this tour
  • This program must be scheduled after noon. Best suited for five years old and up.

Target!

Train the Animals

One of the zookeepers will meet your group and explain how and why we train the animals in the Charles Towne Landing Animal Forest. You will then become some of the animals and play the "Training Game" to earn some "treats"! After we train, you'll head off to the Animal Forest and see a real live training session with the otters or bears -- your choice! (please specify when making your reservation)

  • Group Size - 15 max
  • One adult for every 5 children required on this tour
