I just checked DD's old kinder - it's $150 to hire the kinder on a weekend day, gives you all day access to the facilities.
Great option if your local Kinders do the same - enclosed space, playground, a gazillion indoor toys, sandpits, full kitchen for you to use, all the little tables and chairs you want, different play zones for different interests etc.

On Saturday vs Sunday, most of the parties we've been to and held are on Sunday, presumably so parents have Saturday to prep. I like Sunday morning as then you have the afternoon to fall in a heap before having to front up to work the next day!

I'll go against the grain and say that a whole-class party at the park has been one of the easiest parties I've ever done (and DD3's birthday party last weekend was the 26th birthday party I've hosted...)
The playground equipment is enough- but if you really want to, buy a cheap bubble machine and have that going, or take some balls/frisbees/etc.
Keep the food super simple: I did cut up watermelon, orange quarters, cookies, crisps, popcorn, water and poppers, plus the birthday cake.
A few lollies in a cellophane bag is more than enough if you do want to do party bags- you certainly don't have to.
Don't plan on not many coming: I had 9 RSVP, and 28 turn up on the day.
The only thing I'd not do again at a 'party at the park' is have a treasure hunt- we had a few kids who weren't part of the party and just happened to be at the park at that time realise what was happening, join in, and then take off with handfuls of lollies.
