Looking for an outdoor site for your wedding ceremony? One of our gazebos located in our parks might be the perfect location. The following parks have at least one gazebo that can be rented for a 2 hour time block for your ceremony. There is also a butterfly garden in Roosevelt Park where you can have your ceremony. You can download the park maps on each page to see the exact location of the gazebo within each park. Some gazebos overlook the water while others are surrounded by trees for a more secluded feel. There is also a butterfly garden in Roosevelt Park near the open grove where you can have your ceremony. We only schedule 1 ceremony per day at these locations which will allow you time to decorate and set up chairs for your ceremony before the actual time scheduled. Call the reservation office at (732) 745-3900 for availability, prices, and with any other questions.
For your reception, you can rent out one of our picnic areas for a full day. For information about picnic areas, please visit the picnic reservation page
You are absolutely allowed to use any park area to take your wedding pictures with no charge as long as the photos being taken are for personal use only. The photos cannot be used for promotion.
