Gateway Employee Corner

It is time for another Gateway Employee Corner! This week we have Katie

Katie is a fun and easy-going manager here at Gateway Park. She began working at Gateway in 2007, then went to Minnesota for college. She got a partial scholarship to Mcalester for her excellent skills in both softball and academics. Katie spent her time in college majoring in math and statistics while catching for the softball team. She even managed a Noodles and Company while she was there! She recommends the pesto cavatappi with cheese sauce on top, yum! She later returned to Gateway for the great environment and small business experience. Katie wants to own her own business one day, and what better way to start then by working here, at Gateway Park?

Katie loves to play softball on a recreational team, and even coaches one of her own! She uses the batting cages at Gateway Park all the time, and says the fast pitch baseball is her favorite. “The batting cages at Gateway are the perfect place for people of all ages to not only learn how to hit balls, but to then enhance their skills as well,” she confidently says. In addition to hitting the batting cages, Katie loves to spend time with her dog, River. They go on hikes together and when they get tired they go eat some frozen custard, as long as it isn’t chocolate flavored!

Like Katie says, we have great batting cages at Gateway Park, and would love for you to drop by! We have nine different cages, ranging from slow pitch softball to fast pitch baseball. Bats and helmets are provided, completely free! Katie, and all of us employees agree, Gateway Park Fun Center is a great place for families to have fun in Boulder! We’ll see you soon!

Softball!

My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump of feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging.

Planning a Child’s Birthday

“A goal without a plan is just a wish”

-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Planning a birthday can be tricky. It can be overwhelming to remember all the little details necessary in order to pull of a seamless birthday party. The best way to start any such task is with a list!

1. Find a time that works:

The most important person at the party is the one having the party! Second most important is the one throwing the party (you!). Plan a time that works for the two of you and the rest will follow.

2. Find a place:

Pick an activity that is fun for everyone. This could be at your house, a restaurant, the movies, a park, or a fun park. Make this a place that is convenient and fun for the invitees.

3. Invitations:

Now that you’ve chosen a time and place, everything else begins to fall into place. The next step is to tell everyone who you are planning to invite where to be and when to meet for the party. If you want to make your life easy check out websites such as evite.com and invite everyone over the internet. Although traditional letters are always an option as well.

4. Themes:

Perhaps you want to spice up the party with a theme. Some theme options include, superheroes, dinosaurs, princesses, aquatics, or any of you child’s favorite movies. Party On in Boulder has all the decorations you need for any theme.

5. Food and Cake

The next step is to choose what to eat. Pizza is always the classic option however you have license to get creative with it. Lastly (and perhaps the most important step) one needs to pick out a cake. The options here are limitless, chocolate, vanilla, ice cream cake, red velvet, cupcakes, and fudge to name a few.

At Gateway we want to help you make this process as seamless is as possible. We like to say bring the kids and the cake and we will take care of the rest! We can even get the cake for you if necessary. Check out all the birthday party options Gateway has to offer here. With many customizable options you can find exactly what you are looking for. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call and we can help set you up with the perfect birthday party!

Spring at last

Spring

“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”

― Margaret Atwood

 

It looks like spring is here to stay. Although, in Boulder, as we know, that can mean a lot of things. Perhaps another few blizzards before we can be sure we will be warm wearing shorts outside.

Gateway Park Fun Center is open and in full swing with our spring business hours. Take advantage of these last few moments of spring break and spend some time with friends and family out in the sun at Gateway. We hope to see you here!
