A safe shared fun space

For almost twenty years Partytime Garden has been a place where communities can come together and share in the fun. We provide a safe shared space for animals and children where they can play, learn and work together.

We are a living, learning place which promotes reconciliation, conservation and education. So come and join us for the day or a longer stay.


Partytime Garden is found in a quiet hollow where the fairies once lived, and still might!  You will find us beside the banks of the shining River Bann and close to the Bluebell woods of Portglenone Forest.

In the garden you can pick which path you’d like to follow and which world you would like to explore. From knights and castles to the Wild West we have something for everyone.

We share our home with a number of furry friends and of course the fairies.

plan a visit


Partytime Garden is such a peaceful spot we thought we could spread that feeling. We welcome everyone and help communities enjoy their own culture and sample others.

The Garden is a safe welcoming space, which provides the perfect backdrop to events and activities for all the family. Sitting in a hidden glen its the perfect spot for a party, and legend has it that the wee folk loved nothing more.

Come Together


We think the garden is a beautiful spot and when we are not busy looking after it and the animals which live here we try to make sure other areas are kept as beautiful.

Conservation means looking after the world around us, and the animals and plants that call it home. We feel priveleged to have such a beautiful place and would like to pass it on to future generations a little bit better than we found it.

If you would like to help us help the environment just join us and become friends with the garden and the countryside.

Help Us Help


Even school can be fun at Partytime Garden, with our Zoo for You and PET schools programme to our hands on training and education we make learning fun.

We believe that leaning new things make us better happier people, and education can give us all a second chance. We  teach people to look after animals and the beautiful world around them.

This not only helps nature but we think it helps us too.

Volunteers not visitors

We always welcome visitors, but we will always find a job for you to do. So why just visit when you can volunteer, and become another friend of the garden.

You can help us feed the animals, and look after the plants. New events and activities always work better with another pair opf hands.

Ways to Help

Helping You to Help Us

Keeping the Garden open and the dreams alive takes alot of time, work and money each year. We are a voluntary organisation and we rely of the generosity of the communities we serve and a number of funders who help us run a number of projects, programmes and events each year.

If you would like to support our work by donating food for the animals, running fundraising events, helping us with upkeep or other cost we would love to hear from you. As a registered charity we always welcome businesses who would like to support our vision.
