    Beware of this Event Site - Not Recommended

    If I could give Crescent Park zero stars I would. Their event manager is slow to respond and provides misleading and incorrect information. Jeremy will tell you that a tent can be staked, even though he is aware that it cannot be staked into the lawn. When it was discovered the MORNING of our wedding that our tent, etc. could not be put up, Jeremy's response amounted to "not my problem". The entire organization has refused to take responsibility for a ruined reception. Crescent Park has also failed to deliver back our security deposit as required under their own contract and will not respond to messages, etc. around these issues. This place is scam and I hope no other couples get tricked into hosting here!
