12 Parks for Bounce House Birthday Parties in LA

Party Locations: Moon Bounce Rentals & LA Parks

Sometimes we want our kids to have birthday parties teeming with enriching activities and professional party entertainment from start to finish. Other times, we just want them to go outside and jump somewhere far away from the sofa. Families with sprawling back yards might be fortunate enough not to need the information below, but for the many, many LA families raising kids in smaller homes than they ever imagined they would, our wonderful city parks are our life support system; the parks that allow bounce houses can be even more so. Check out 12 great parks we love that let kids enjoy bouncers at their birthday parties.

Note that parties with bounce houses, moon bounces, or other inflatables always require permits. Permit fees vary widely, depending upon the community, the size of the party, and the size of the bouncer, etc. Often local residents get a lower price. Some parks do not allow generators; these offer use of the park's electricity for an additional fee. What with one thing and another, the bounce house permit fee can range from $20 to $200, so be sure to inquire with as many specifics as possible, using the phone numbers below. Also note that some parks have a list of approved bounce house rental companies, so it can be best to start with the park, then choose the company.
