Whether the occasion is a small corporate meeting or a large, lavish wedding, multiple outdoor options are available to you within our 185-acre park.

To schedule an event at the park, complete and submit the reservation request form.

The main hall is approximately 1,800 square feet, which opens onto front and side terraces. There are landscaped planting beds and a landscaped parking lot adjacent to the hall.

Due to high public demand, the walking trail and the Hank Rappé Playground will remain open to the public at all times during regular park hours. The soccer fields cannot be utilized for events because of ongoing turf maintenance. The TVA and Hecht Pavilions are not available for private rental during spring baseball/softball season.
