A Place to Meet Up
There are many reasons for people to come together, enjoy each other’s company, celebrate a life event, or simply have a magical day in a new place with family and friends. Whatever event you’d like to hold here, we’d be happy to accommodate you with all the many facilities at our park.
Whether you’re preparing to start a new life with your spouse-to-be or you’re bringing a new life into the world, you can make use of our Conference Center or Picnic Shelter as perfect places to celebrate and have presents and refreshments.
Our park is great for those important milestones in life—particularly if you’ve had a long, wonderful life together with your sweetheart. Whether it’s your anniversary or you’re planning for someone else, our park is a great place for large family gatherings.
Our facilities will help you celebrate the life of your child, spouse, friend, or whomever you'd like to have this celebration for!
Talk, laugh, and reminisce about the old days, whether you're getting together with old high school friends or you're having a Boilermaker reunion!
We hope we’ve given you some ideas for your event. It doesn’t need to be on this list to be a valid celebration! Check out our different Facilities and Amenities for more ideas on how you can take advantage of our park to make your particular event a fun and educational one.
