I’ve been to several kids’ parties in this lush 585-acre park, and there are two spots I particularly recommend. The barbecue area, which has grills and picnic tables under huge trees near grassy fields, and the small green patch next to the carousel. There’s more space to run around by the grills, but the spot by the merry-go-round is more contained, plus you can treat the kids to a spin or two. If you have 20 or more people, you need to obtain a permit. Not a DIYer? The Carousel and Lefferts Historic House offer birthday party packages. There are also multiple year-round restrooms in the park, plus Porta Potties in summer.
