We know that wedding planning can be stressful, especially when it comes to finding the right venue. You want to find something that can accommodate your guests, meet your food and beverage needs, and generally encapsulate your vibe. While we might be biased about our event space (we highly recommend setting up a tour), our team also wants you to feel happy and confident about your choice. That’s why we put together a guide with everything you need to know about rooms and rentals at Central Park Place.
Availability & Booking
Our team recently updated our booking system so guests can view our full event calendar and book directly online. We accept bookings anytime as long as the desired date and room are available. To secure your reservation, half of the rental fee is due at the time of signing, and the remaining balance, plus a refundable damage deposit, is due 30 days before your event.
Capacity & Space
One of the biggest advantages of Central Park Place is space. Our Mackinaw Ballroom can accommodate up to 240 people in a banquet-style setting and also includes access to our fenced-in Front Porch area where guests can enjoy cocktails. The Fountain Patio can be added for outdoor games or photos, and the Atrium Gallery is available as a rental add-on for $75. The Gallery, featuring work from local artists, provides a beautiful backdrop for cocktail receptions. We also offer additional rentable space options for smaller weddings and celebrations.
Catering & Bar Services
While Central Park Place does not offer in-house catering, we allow couples to hire any caterer of their choice for the big day. If you are looking into local catering options, check out our list of Recommended Caterers. Alcohol can also be served by a licensed business for private events.
Onsite Support & Accessibility
For events with over 100 guests, we provide an onsite supervisor who will be available during the entire reception. If you select an Outdoor Wedding Package, we can also help you develop a backup plan in case of inclement weather.
Our team is also happy to work with you and your family with special accommodations. Our building is wheelchair accessible with touch-to-open doors, elevator access, and handicapped bathroom stalls. We also offer easy-to-access parking at the back of the building, street parking, and building-adjacent parking. Did we mention that all parking is free?! A great perk for being within city limits!
Wedding packages start at $1,000, and our team is happy to set up a free consultation to develop a custom quote. Our packages (full-day rentals) include indoor room rentals and outdoor options at City Beach and Central Park. Packages include a bridal suite, groom’s room, and free table and chair set up and tear down.
