Cape Town + Southern Suburb Party Play Venues

Cape Town + Southern Suburb Party Play Venues

Last update: 30 March 2023
As parents we are always on the lookout for fun ideas and venues for kids' birthday parties for a variety of reasons: first of all, kids love to be entertained and party venues usually cater to that, there is the decor, the cleaning and all the details to keep in mind. With so many balls to juggle it just makes sense to consider a kids' party venue and entertainment hire options instead of throwing one in your own home and having 20 kids play with your child's favourite toys.

So here is a great list of birthday party venues for kids. We have updated the blog to include Southern suburbs, city bowl venues, Cape Town Northern Suburbs and Cape Winelands party places.

Also, read our blog on Cape Town's FREE birthday offers.
