Looking for a larger space to hold your special party or event? The Deerfield Park District has rooms for rent at several locations, including the Jewett Park Community Center, Sachs Recreation Center, Patty Turner Center and Deerfield Golf Club. Birthday parties, first communion or graduation parties, family gatherings, whatever your special occasion, why not bring the party to “our house?” Basic rentals are for a three hour time period, but we can customize a package to meet your needs.
All rental fees and deposits are due in full in advance when the contract is signed. The deposit fee will be returned to you after your event, assuming you have met the terms of your contract.
The park district will provide tables and chairs (adult/youth), banquet tables for serving, card tables for gifts, and area rugs for children’s entertainment seating. You supply the plates, cups, napkins, plastic ware, tablecloths (tables are eight feet long), and serving pieces, not to mention the food, birthday candles, bags to take gifts home, and other party materials.
Information on pool party rentals is available here.
