This venue is perfection. Its a tiny secret in downtown Philadelphia. You get the entire park for yourself for 3 hours. It was more than enough space for our micro wedding ceremony. The staff were great and given that we were in the middle of Covid, they were so responsive and ready to answer any of our questions or concerns. Kathleen and Jhona are wonderful. I really also enjoyed their official caterer, Brulee Catering. The food was BANGIN. My family and friends had ZERO complaints about the venue or food. I highly recommend them.Sent on 11/23/2020

This venue was perfect for our small wedding ceremony. Leading up to our wedding the weather forecast looked beautiful, but then the night before suddenly a large rain storm was due in the area all day. Naturally I panicked a bit, but still really wanted to have my wedding in this beautiful park. Kathleen came to the rescue and told us that we could hold out until 30 minutes before the ceremony and if the rain was still coming down they could put up a tent last minute for us. This worked out perfectly since the rain stopped just in time for our ceremony so we got full use out of this beautiful space.Sent on 04/29/2017

We took our pictures before our wedding at the John F. Collins park. We got ready at the hotel Palomar and walked a block down to this park. Sarah was great to work with! For a small fee they cleaned and closed down the park for us for an hour while we took pictures. I can't wait to see how the pictures came out!Sent on 05/18/2015
