You choose two areas:
The first hour, choose the Lobby or the front Sun Deck. The second hour choose between the recreational pool or 1/2 the gymnasium. We’ll provide tables and available play equipment. You’re welcome to decorate your activity area any way you like (as long as it’s not permanent!) and bring in refreshments, birthday cake, and beverages (alcoholic beverages are not permitted). We’ve got a refrigerator you can use while you’re here.
