  • Worked very well for us. We did a wedding on a Sunday afternoon in June. The staff was pretty organized and had the tables and chairs set up inside (reception area). We had to set the chairs up outside (wedding area). It has pleasant surroundings outside, and the overhang helped create much needed shade. The girls did lots of decorations and made the place look pretty nice. The staff was pretty helpful, friendly,, and got us the stuff we needed. The kitchen area is pretty roomy, as is the grand hallway. The sound system is a little funky, so make sure your DJ is capable if you have special audio needs like we did. There is an area for dancing, but it's not a true dance floor (varied textures of flooring). But again, it worked okay. I would recommend for small to average size weddings (100), not much larger. All in all, a solid place to have a celebration!
  • I attended a wedding here. What an amazingly beautiful place. Private, next to the river, so beautiful.
  • Overall the park is great with clean restrooms, lots of parking, river access and convention center available as well as river recreation rental shop onsite for seasonal use.
  • Excellent park to walk next to the river, launch your raft in the summer, have a cookout or hold an event.
  • It costs $5 to enter this park with a vehicle. If you are going to float the river, park for free at Ann Morrison and take the shuttle here for $2 instead.
