History

The museum and grounds once served as the home of Frank and Elizabeth Harden. The grounds functioned as the couple's haven away from city life. When they found this harmonic retreat, Frank and Elizabeth were married on the property and became the first couple to be wed on the grounds. When Elizabeth and Frank passed away in 1964 and 1965, respectively, the lovely estate was left to the local individuals in New Milford, who now continue to preserve the couple's memory with their appreciation for Harrybrooke Park.

A perfect place to get married

Our wedding at Harrybrooke Park was a truly magical experience. The grounds are beautiful and the maintenance staff and gardening club went above and beyond in preparing the park for our special day. Bill and Arielle were immensely helpful from the day we took our first tour through our wedding day. The Harden House & Museum was a magnificent setting for us to get ready and take pictures, and the history of the park and house lend themselves to creating the perfect atmosphere for a wedding. The park staff were extremely flexible and they do all they can to make your dream wedding come to life. They were also flexible with vendors; it was a great value holding our wedding there. We highly recommend Harrybrooke Park for your wedding and reception.

Best Wedding Venue!

Harrybrooke Park alone is a beautiful location! Then you add in working with Billy, who has a true passion for this place, and then you will get a day you will truly never forget. Being a bride in 2020, I had to make many last minute adjustments, but the staff at Harrybrooke worked their amazing magic and helped to make my day unforgettable.
I was able to have my bridal shower here. Then I had my rehearsal here. My bridal party got to get ready in the Harden House. I got to have a beautiful ceremony in the garden and my photographer took some beautiful pictures because of the scenery that Harrybrooke has to offer.
I would recommend Harrybrooke Park to anyone looking to have a one in a kind day!

Amazing outdoor wedding venue

Gorgeous outdoor space with views of waterfall and lovely garden to be married in. You and your bridesmaids get to get dressed in the amazing Harden Home which looks like you took a step back in time. The building is also a museum and shows the rich history of the couple that used to live there and gives a look into what the past was like. Bill Buckbee knows so much history about the land and previous owners. The grounds are nicely manicured for a public park. It was the perfect place for our country style outdoor wedding and had plenty of room for guests. The waterfalls, giant trees and flowers garden served as perfect places for photos. Bill was hands down the kindness and easiest person to work with. He has an eye for detail and really knows how to help make your special day even more amazing! He honestly took a lot of the stress out of the wedding planning for the venue and has a lot of vendors that he works with to make suggestions. I can not recommend this venue enough! If you want a lovely, stress-free, beautiful wedding experience you should choose Harrybrooke Park.
