Open Houses Let You Shop for the Right Venue for Your Event

Metroparks facilities are available for weddings, receptions, bridal and baby showers, family reunions, business meetings and retreats as well as other events. These venues in beautiful settings can make any gathering memorable.

To help plan your event, the Customer Service Dept. holds open houses throughout the year at various Metroparks where you can see the facilities and talk with staff about your questions before you reserve a date.

Open houses are from 4 to 6 p.m. on the following 2017 schedule.
