Facilities and Capacity
Is your rosy-lensed heart fixated on an outdoor ceremony? Say your vows in the Rose Garden, which features a 75-foot long garden pathway for a breathtaking entrance, romantic and classic rose bushes, and a gazebo set in the foreground among deep green, groomed hedges.
After your ceremony, enjoy a refreshing cocktail hour on an outdoor patio, which likewise offers stunning views of the surrounding greenery and course, classically designed by William F. Bell.
The ballroom, ideal for your reception, accommodates up to 190 guests. High cathedral ceilings, dark wood cross beams, and exquisite chandeliers are some of the period staples that contribute beautifully to the 1920’s Spanish Colonial charm of this venue. Attached to the patio through a set of French doors, couples and their guests can move from the intimate indoors to the expansive outdoors, transitioning from the handsome dark wood interior to the vast, open fairways. This room is white-walled to accommodate a variety of color schemes and personalized themes. It also comes with a spacious dance floor.
Your reception can also take place in the clubhouse itself, which comes complete with a banquet room, a get-ready room, and its own restaurant. The red pan tiled roof and pillared portico of the clubhouse harken back to 1926 and contribute even more richly to the historic value of this enchanting and nostalgic facility.
This venue also offers a luxurious loft as a privatized get-ready room. This loft features a six-person vanity for the entire wedding party, a flat-screen television, and a separate luxury space available.

Beautiful Venue, Excellent Service, Great Collaboration
Before we requested a tour we inquired about pricing and packages, Tawnya responded promptly and was very informative. We toured the location multiple times, before deciding on our venue and after, and every time it was a very positive experience and Tawnya was very accommodating. A garden wedding full of our own personality was what we envisioned and although we had some aspects of the reception area we wanted to adjust, the team was able to deliver our vision.
From start to finish everything was very clear, and if we did have questions along the way Tawnya was able to communicate with us promptly and was assuring throughout the time leading up to our wedding day.
We attended a tasting which we enjoyed very much and further, we were also able to speak with Mayra who led catering and preparation the day of the wedding. Mayra was able to speak to us about her experience and even gave us ideas for our own wedding and appeased any doubts we had.
Tawnya, Mayra and the entire Recreation Park 18 team were very understanding of our needs, patient with our questions, flexible with our requests, and above all truly understood our vision and helped us make it a reality.
The day of our wedding, our personal wedding coordinator worked alongside Mayra and her team to execute our wishes and schedule. The catering staff in particular were so kind and professional. Separately, our wedding photos can show how beautiful the course, patio, and garden areas were and could not have asked for better collaboration to make this day possible.
We are so grateful to the team and fully recommend the services and accommodation of Recreation Park 18.

This is a great location for an event. The event coordinators are very knowledgeable and helpful. It's nice that the facility has many options for both the ceremony & reception. I have been to many events at this location and it is always well maintained. The food is excellent and I am without exception, always impressed with the friendly staff. What a great, worry free place for an event.
I've had the pleasure to work with Katelyn, and can I just say, she is a class act! When you have a professional that knows their job, and loves what they do, it makes a world of difference for their clients and their vendors. Her professionalism and attention to detail is apparent from start to finish.
Great staff and the recent remodel makes this intimate venue vary adaptable to any type of decor and is centered by a large and lovely fireplace. The cocktail reception courtyard is private and allows for great mingling amongst your guests. Great for a couple who wants a venue with character and a friendly staff along with a central location.
