I'm planning a bit of a party for DS's 3 rd birthday but can't think of any suitable games to do. I can only think of pass the parcel and pin the tail on the donkey but neither really work in a park.
Any ideas? There will be kids a few years older as well.

We had DD2's 3rd birthday party in a park. The adults chatted and ate while the kids played and ate lol. I didn't worry about games, the kids still had a great time.
Sorry I guess I'm not much help!

We just had a 3yo party in the park yesterday. We had one game of pass the parcel using our phone for the music, a few bubble wands and we had a face painter. No other games needed as the kids were busy on the playground and running around.

What's the theme?

We had DS's 3rd birthday at the park and it was a pirate theme, so I got a couple of buckets and filled them with sand and buried "treasure" (just plastic beads and bangles etc) but I think the best thing about the park is just letting them run and play.

I had DDs last party at the park. All I had was a piñata and they entertained themselves for the rest.
You could do a scavenger hunt? It could take as little or as long as you wanted?

Ohh, piñata, good idea!
Theme, well DS wants a digger cake, a mister maker cake and a toy story cake!! I'm planning to do a digger/ construction cake.
The only thing is it's a fairly small park, it has a sea saw, couple of swings and a climbing/slide thingo. There is room for kids to run about though.

DD had her birthday in the park recently. A large part of it has sand as a base and I bought some $1 plastic dinosaurs from BigW so we could have a dinosaur dig (I just had to remember how many we had and where they were buried!!)
Bubbles are always popular, I bought a bubble gun from KMart for $5.
Egg and spoon races with ping pong balls and plastic spoons.
