Finding appropriate birthday venues in Kennesaw, Ga., for your toddler can be a tough task, but there are some options from which you can choose. Most of the available venues are geared toward children who can walk on their own, but the private party atmosphere of these venues invites parents to play along with their children in a safe, relaxed atmosphere that everyone can enjoy.

Swift-Cantrell Park

Part of the Kennesaw Parks and Recreation Department, Swift-Cantrell Park, at 3140 Old 41 Highway, provides three pavilions that can accommodate parties of up to 60 people. The park amenities include two playgrounds as well as two restroom facilities, along with plenty of open turf for running and play. Reservations are required to use the pavilions, and you must clean up after yourself and your guests.

Chuck E. Cheese's

Chuck E. Cheese's, at 824 Earnest W. Barrett Parkway, offers party packages for children of all ages that include a predetermined number of tokens for games, catering and interactive activities for the children. Chuck E. Cheese's does not offer private party rooms, but rather has the party set up picnic-style on one side of the party center, allowing parents to talk while keeping an eye on their children in either the toddler or preschool play area.

McDonald's Playplace

With two locations in Kennesaw with child-friendly Playplaces, McDonald's is always a hit with youngsters. In addition to typical McDonald's children's fare, party goers are provided with a Ronald McDonald yellow or chocolate cake, decorations and party favors. Reservations are required ahead of time, so contact any of the locations' managers to set up the party. The McDonald's in Kennesaw with Playplaces are at 305 Barrett Parkway and 4415 Wade Green Road.

The Grande at Kennesaw

For a more formal event, The Grande at Kennesaw, at 3030 N. Main St., has two available event spaces: a ballroom and an outdoor courtyard that can be set up to accommodate a first-class birthday party for your toddler. In-house catering is available, but be sure to book in advance, as this venue is often used for weddings and anniversaries, as well.
