We had our wedding ceremony at the Des Moines Beach Park Meadow, followed by our reception in the Auditorium. We were absolutely thrilled with how great everything turned out. Both locations comfortably fit our 200 guests. The staff were friendly and accommodating on wedding day, as well as very responsive during wedding planning. We made absolutely the right decision with choosing the Des Moines Beach Park!Sent on 07/02/2017

Loved our venue and the responsiveness of all their staff, they truly made our day wonderful. . The Dining Hall's remodel is absolutely gorgeous. They allowed us to decorate the day prior, to put some of my anxiety at ease. My deposit was returned promptly after our wedding day.Sent on 03/14/2017

Shannon and her crew were wonderful to work with. Very caring, attentive, flexible and fun! We used the Auditorium for our wedding venue and it was perfect for our 160 crowd. We had the ceremony outside along the side of the building in the courtyard (also a great place for all the kids to play in) and the reception inside. We got wonderful sunset shots across the water...a perfect evening! I highly recommend using the Beach Park for whatever event you are planning. Thanks Des Moines Beach Park!! -Kelly + RobertSent on 12/05/2014
