Read what parents have to say about Birthday Celebrations at Longue Vue!

"As a parent I would like to say that Collin's birthday party could not have gone as well or been at as beautiful of a venue as Longue Vue's Discovery Garden! As an Environmental Scientist, I would like to applaud Longue Vue for the amazing educational program y'all have to help expose and educate our children in nature and conservation. My guests are still raving about the Discovery Garden, so don't be surprised if you see some of those faces again for their own events."

"Everything was spectacular! The staff were excellent. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. Everything was wonderful! There's a reason why we have had four out of Riley's six birthday parties at Longue Vue. We appreciate all of your help with booking the party."

"Again thank you so much for preparing for Skylar's 4th birthday - it truly was spectacular! The parents were still talking about it today at school!  I am so appreciative for Longue Vue and for a great celebration!"
