Parties are welcome at SASMEE Park – and not just for birthdays!
Please be the first in your party to arrive. Be early!
With our new COVID-safe guidelines in place, SASMEE Park opens to the public at 1:30pm, with the first train rides leaving the station as soon as people have boarded.
We have a number of tables and picnic spaces available at SASMEE Park, but are unable to reserve one for you in advance. When COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, we may be able to allow party hosts into the park early, but for now, it’s first in, best-dressed.
Your guests may purchase their own tickets, but if you would prefer to offer them free entry, you must purchase tickets for your guests in advance. Make sure you distribute all tickets to your guests before arrival – we do not keep guest lists or hold tickets at the gate. Remember, tickets can be printed out, or displayed on a smartphone or other device.
No government imposed covid restrictions are in place, but we still recommend you wear a mask in crowded areas and keep social distancing where possible.
If you have Covid19 symptoms, please do not come to SASMEE
Food + Decorations:
You may bring in any food and decorations you wish (including, of course, your cake!). If you prefer, our canteen can supply drinks and snacks for visitors.
SASMEE Canteen. We cook hot chips for sale during Public run days. In addition, we sell hot drinks, a variety of cold drinks, and a range of Golden North icecreams.
Alcohol is not permitted anywhere in SASMEE Park.
Given the open nature of our park space, a large floating balloon can be a helpful way to let your guests know which party is yours!
Party planners and entertainers are not necessary at SASMEE and the enjoyment of other attendees and the SASMEE members must not be compromised. Permission must be obtained in writing for such activities.
Please keep children under your control at ALL times.
On trains, children must be accompanied by an adult, with no more than four children per adult per ride.
Please REMOVE as much RUBBISH as possible (including all party decorations and wrapping paper). Discarded food not only makes the place look untidy, but it also attracts pests and vermin to our park. You brought it in, you take it away.
Our steam engines are real, and create real sparks, soot and steam.
You must wear fully-enclosed footwear – you might get dirty!
