According to real birth data compiled from 20 years of American births, mid-September is the most birthday-packed time of the year.

Oxford’s many parks under the Oxford Park Commission’s umbrella have been popular places to host birthday parties for the young and old.

If someone arrives at a park early enough to claim a space at one of the pavilions there is no charge to hold a birthday party at any of the OPC parks. A reservation isn’t required. People can still use the pavilions at no charge but on a first-come basis and there are no guarantees others won’t be using the pavilions

Residents can reserve a pavilion 30 days in advance of an event. The pavilion at Avent Park can be reserved for $35 an hour. Smaller pavilions at Price Hill Park and Garden Terrace can be reserved for $20 an hour. All reservations require a $50 security deposit. A security guard will be provided to make sure the pavilion is left open during the rental period as well as taking care of the spot during the party.

Fees must be paid within 72 hours of the event. People can rent a pavilion by stopping into the OPC office. There is a form to fill out and the deposit is needed at that point. You cannot secure a pavilion over the phone.

John Davis, with OPC, said people can call OPC to check a date and see if someone has reserved a pavilion.

“One thing I tell people when they call is they don’t have to rent, but if they want to have exclusive access to the pavilion, they should rent,” Davis said. “And if they take the chance of just hoping someone hasn’t rented, and they get there and it’s been rented, they will have to move to a different location or figure out another option.”
