A great venue for the nature-inclined!

We held our wedding at Lake St. Clair Metropark's Huron Point Gazebo and Thomas Welsh Activity Center. Everything was beautiful—we got lots of compliments from our guests about both locations. The staff was very friendly and responsive and answered all of our questions leading up to the event. During the wedding, they were around to help with all the little things when we gave them a call. We loved how wheelchair accessible the park and facilities were for our loved ones. The police presence and firm regulations have their pros and cons, but overall, we were very happy we decided to have our wedding here.

We loved having our wedding at Indian Springs Metropark! We worked with both Tamra and Joe, I was a little nervous when the coordinator changed a few months before our wedding but the transition was smooth and we didn't notice any difference or hiccups at all! The venue is beautiful and ceremony location is amazing.

Unbelievable! We Love DJ-ing Weddings here!!! Not only is the Florida Room great for a reception but the Beach is a Beautiful View for a Ceremony! We wish more couples would have their big day here because you cannot beat the view, especially when the sun sets on the water, no better place for Pictures.
