Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Its name means “little cottage on the crest of the hill”, and this sweet, rustic wooden structure certainly embodies its charming moniker. Constructed of natural tree trunks and branches, the whimsical circular gazebo sits atop a large outcrop at the southern foot of the Park, and is a wonderful choice for your romantic, intimate ceremony.
  • As the seasons change, so does Cop Cot—surrounded by mature trees, it becomes overgrown with vines across its roof and supporting trunks in the spring and summer, creating a romantic, shaded, “secret garden" feel, and as autumn peaks, the space becomes wrapped in a colorful display of vibrant foliage. Vows can be held inside or outside the structure, depending upon your guest count and desired effect.
  • You’ll have the stellar team at ParkWed by Happenings™ with you all the way. Pioneered by world-class event designer Tom Noel, this unique service blends expert planning and curation with an easy booking process—simply choose your date, time, and favorite location, and then select a package that suits your needs (or create your own.) On the big day, your in-person location manager will ensure that everything goes smoothly.
