Since last summer, my son has been asking for his next birthday party.

At the ripe age of 4, he already knows the best places in town (this is where I roll my eyes).

And this year, his birthday venue of choice award goes to the Field House at Chelsea Piers!

Having been to a couple of parties there I have to agree: it is a great place to have your birthday celebration.

Reasons I like it:

1. The venue is big and spacious. The parties we went to were held at the toddler gym and the basketball court, and kids had a lot of room to run around.

2. Great for kids of ALL ages. Parties are suitable for kids starting at age 1 and up!

3. Variety of party themes and activities. Sooo many sports activities to choose from – soccer, ice skating, gym… you name it – they will likely have it!

4. Location. For us living in Chelsea/NoMad/Flatiron, it’s pretty easy to get to Chelsea Piers. It’s also located by the water, and young kids like watching the boats and the river. There’s also a playground and a carousel nearby for after-party fun! 

Why Chelsea Piers is one of NYC’s most popular destinations for sports-themed birthday parties?

  • The staff are largely full-time coaches and counselors who have devoted their careers to working with children
  • Experienced party coordinators and parents are treated to a fun-filled and hassle-free event
  • Activities range from traditional sports like ice skating, ice hockey, soccer, flag football, basketball, rock climbing and gymnastics to a Toddler Gym for your little athletes, Dodgeball party or an old school party themed Ultimate Birthday with potato sack races, tug of war, scooter races, and kick ball.
  • Chelsea Piers is also a great spot as kids grow up for Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and Sweet 16’s!
