Enjoy a party at Texas Discovery Gardens!

We provide setup with a tablecloth, paper goods and utensils.
You may bring in a birthday cake or cupcakes, goodie bags and drinks for your guests to enjoy. We now offer catered lunches, treats and cakes from our onsite vendor, Sugar City sweets&celebrations! Just ask Tammy when you book your party.
We can provide a complimentary age appropriate craft upon request.

Party with the Butterflies!

You and your guests will enjoy admission to the beautiful Butterfly House Exhibit.

Members of your party do not have to enter as a group, but children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. For the best experience, we will talk with guests prior to entry on proper etiquette (for example, if you run to a butterfly, it thinks you're trying to eat it and will fly away! Walk calmly and you may be rewarded with one landing on you).

Make sure you and your guests enjoy the 7.5 acres of outside gardens as well, including our Snakes of Texas Exhibit!

Program Cost: A party for up to 40 children and adults costs $250 (Garden members pay only $212). For additional guests, add $5 per guest with a maximum of 60 total guests. Enjoy a family membership for only $65! A membership and party costs just $277, and you'll receive gift shop, plant sale and summer camp discounts, as well as free general admission for a year!

Texas Discovery Gardens Provides: Room, setup with tablecloths, paper goods, ice and utensils.

Availability: Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 1 pm or 2 pm to 4 pm. Certain Fridays or Mondays may be available upon request.
