  • It's a fabulous park with an awesome Pacific Northwest location, tucked between ancient redwood forests and the ever-changing panorama of Puget Sound.
  • Exchange vows in the lush Meadow or on the dramatically elevated Promontory, both of which overlook the Sound, Marina pier, and the Olympic Mountain Range.
  • Receptions can be held in the mid-century Auditorium, with its cathedral ceiling and colorful glass windows, the cheerful, "small-town America"-inpsired Dining Hall, or the sleek Founder's Lodge. Or, keep things al fresco with a celebration in the open-sided Picnic Shelter.
