    Marriage proposal

    I decided to book this venue for my proposal to my girl friend. The service was excellent! They were responsive and catered to all my needs to make the event come together, they even helped decorate! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to have an event but also a surreal experience.

    OMG amazing

    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.

    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.
