The Hoover YMCA Park offers convenience, ease, beauty and elegance for your wedding ceremony and reception. Only minutes from downtown Columbus, Hoover offers 65 acres of sun-dappled land with several venue options that create a flexibility in choice for where you want to tie the knot.
Imagine the romance and ambiance of your outdoor wedding at the park's gazebo setting; you walk down the cobblestone aisle and say your "I Dos" under the classically quaint and charming white wooden gazebo while your guests gaze on from the rustic benches. The ceremony will feel private and intimate as the quiet peacefulness of the towering trees and beautiful natural landscape surround you.
Following your gazebo ceremony, invite your guests to a reception at the Optimist Lodge. Radiating rustic romance and a welcoming atmosphere, the barn at the Optimist Lodge offers a stage, wood-burning fireplace, restrooms, a sink, counter area, two decks and a whole lot of charm! Additionally, a tent next to the lodge creates more space for your guests to celebrate. These are just some of the options the Hoover YMCA Park has to offer for your special day. See additional details and options below!

If you are willing to DIY some of your wedding this is the place for you! We were able to keep costs low and still have a beautiful wedding and reception that was so much fun. My husband and I came across this venue by happenstance and we are so happy that we did!

Everything I needed
Quinn has been great help with everything! This is a do it all on your own venue, bring your own everything for little to no extra charge and they just have someone on site for the day of your wedding. We haven't had our wedding yet obviously but I have no doubt that I wont worry about the venue!

Beautiful location for an outside wedding. All the staff that we worked with was very nice and helpful and was there if we needed anything.
