Wedding Guidelines

Wedding ceremonies are scheduled Memorial Day through the first weekend in October each year. Weddings are allowed at the fountain and gazebo areas. Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis and are not confirmed until our office receives a non-refundable payment.  The user is allowed up to three hours of area use.

  • Wedding rehearsals may be scheduled and are normally held the evening prior to the ceremony.
  • No topical applications, runners, mats, etc., are allowed on the grass in the Memorial Fountain area.
  • Tents are not allowed. A canopy may be used if it is set up on the pavement area and secured with weights. Chairs and other decorative items may be used if rented by user.
  • No product other than birdseed may be thrown. No liquor is allowed, but beer and wine are acceptable.
