Teens have a tendency to think they’re totally cool, perhaps even too cool for “kiddie parties.” Thankfully, there are plenty of age-appropriate avenues for the teen set to celebrate.
One of Lamorinda’s most awesome options is Moraga Parks and Recreation Department’s new Skateboard Party. Guests will learn some cool tricks at the Moraga Commons Skate Park with an experienced coach who really knows the ins and outs of free wheelin’ fun. And, Moraga Parks and Rec makes it easy – simply supply the invitations, refreshments/cake and paper products and they do the rest. Skateboard Party packages include a reserved picnic table area at the Commons for refueling after all the skateboarding fun. ($220 for 12 guests + $12 for each additional guest, guests bring their own skateboards and helmets are required). 1799 St. Mary’s Rd., Moraga. (925) 888-7045. moraga.ca.us
You’ll score with a bowling party because the teens burn off plenty of energy before settling down with pizza and cake. Danville Bowl is a great location for a birthday party and they even include pizza and cake with their birthday package. 200 Boone Ct., Danville. (925) 837-7272. danvillebowl.com. Diablo Lanes provides food and beverages with their birthday package and the parent provides the cake. 1500 Monument Blvd., Concord. (925) 671-0913. diablolanes.com
