Ramsey Neighbourhood Park
If you’re keen for super simple and affordable, then heading to your local neighbourhood park is the way to go. Set up a few picnic blankets under the trees and let the kids run wild with jungle gyms, softball, swimming, tennis, basketball and softball. It really doesn’t get any easier.

There are lots of picnic tables to choose from, as well as basketball and tennis courts, a playground and skate park, and a community pool. Bring a moonwalk for a small permit fee or reserve the shelter at an additional cost. Plus their flamingo mosaic is just beautiful to look at.
Lake Travis Waterloo Adventures
Test your skill at Lake Travis Waterloo Adventures with a challenge course or just splash it up in the water park. Grab some replenishment at their food truck or just lounge around on the immaculate grounds. They have plenty of room for your party and the staff provide service with a smile.

Brushy Creek Lake Park
Cool them down at Brushy Creek Lake Park’s Splash Pad or let them run free over the hiking trails and sports courts. There are four pavillions available to book, otherwise there are lots of picnic tables and grills available at a first come first served basis.

There is definitely ample space at this massive 180 acre reservoir. Lake Pflugerville hosts a playground, beach area and walking trail.

How did we come up with this list of Birthday Places in Austin?
Lucky for you we have taken part in numerous outdoor Birthday bashes in ATX and either visited the locations above or were recommended to them by our entertainers and customers. We also do our best to keep their details up to date and make sure that the information in the post is correct.
We realise that this list isn’t all the places you can throw a party outdoors in Austin (That would take up 10 posts) but if you have an outdoor venue that you have experienced personally and would like to recommend please let us know in the comments below so we can add it.
