I fell in love with this venue! Everything about it was perfect! I love the private country setting/environment. Very clean and plenty of parking:) Also, Parks and Rec was great to work with, they helped me every step of the way. Very professional people:) Thank you Brenda!Sent on 08/02/2019

Excellent value, beautiful space
We rented Highlands House in Ben Lomond for an indoor winter wedding and were completely happy with our decision. This is an excellent value—none of the ridiculous mark-ups that private venues charge when they find out your event is a wedding. Highlands House is beautiful and spacious, with a number of interior rooms that allow for flexibility in set-up (including a kitchen for food prep, a storage room for tables/chairs so you don't need to provide those, and two rooms upstairs for the wedding party to chill in). Everyone I worked with at the SC County Parks office and onsite at the venue was really kind and accommodating. If your event takes place during better weather than mine, the surrounding grounds are also lovely and add a ton of space. Highly recommend!Sent on 01/19/2020

Santa Cruz County Parks's reply:We are so happy that you love Harvey West Park! Unfortunately it is a Santa Cruz City Park instead of one of our Santa Cruz County Park Centers (Aptos Park, Highlands Park, Quail Hollow Ranch and Valencia Hall). I hope you are able to share this with them; I am sure they would love to see your review.
