Reserve the Park for Your Private Function Today

Use of the Park

Wedding & Events

We  often have people who inquire about reserving the Park for a private  function or non-profit charity event. For general information, click on Park Event Information link below. Once you've done that, click on the Application for Use of the Park.  

Please Note:

Bridal parties and local families wishing to have professional family portraits taken at the Park, but not use the grounds for a formal  function are always welcome, however, we request you give us prior  notice so we can make sure no one else has booked the space. It's  happened already! Two brides arrived: one spontaneously and the other who had booked. The first party was asked to leave so second bride, who had reserved the park months earlier, could meet her groom. Let's not spoil anybody's special day because of lack of planning.  The easiest way to ensure your big day won't be spoiled is to make an application and specifically ask to use the park for pictures ONLY. Doing so and making a small donation to the Park for the use of our grounds is encouraged.  


First, PLEASE read the general guidelines and applicant's responsibilities for use of park before you fill out the application
