We had our wedding here March 2019 and it was such a beautiful venue and the customer service from Lysa was amazing! Great small venue for a small event and great service! I recommend this event space for sure! The price was unbeatable by far too!!!

For our low-key, inexpensive wedding, my husband and I decided to go with TimberRidge Adventure Center for our ceremony and reception venue. TimberRidge is actually a Johnson County Park that is only available for rental; it is not open to the general public. We rented the entire park for an entire day for about $800. This gave us access to (1) the "Welcome Center" where our wedding party was able to stay hidden and air-conditioned until the ceremony; (2) the grounds by the lake where we held our ceremony; and (3) the outdoor covered seating area where we held the reception. Our ceremony was held in the shade of an enormous tree overlooking a small lake. The grass was, for the most part, well-maintained and kept short. Our reception was held up a small hill from the ceremony site under a covered shelter. This shelter was significantly nicer than the shelters you see at most parks. It had attached bathrooms (which were kept neat since the park is only available for rental) and a fireplace.
We enjoyed this park over other public parks because of the fact that it was kept private. We didn't have to worry about onlookers from other parts of the park. We also liked this park specifically because it allowed 3.2% alcoholic beverages. No other park in Johnson County allows this. Keep in mind that this park is not near other businesses; it is in the country off of K-10 in Olathe. For us, this was an asset because it was quiet, personal, and unique. Others may find that their guests prefer to drive somewhere a bit closer to their homes.
One thing that could have been an issue is the rain since the only indoor area is the welcome center which can only hold about 60 guests. We took the chance and lucked out. It ended up pouring rain for about an hour the afternoon of our wedding, but it cleared up in just enough time for the sun to dry the grass and for our guests to enjoy the nice weather.

The vendor offers a beautiful setting with a private lake giving wonderful opportunities for wedding photos. The staff was helpful and informative of the amenities available and made certain it was ready for us when we arrived. We had a beautiful, private park with an entire day to enjoy it. We were able to accommodate a large party for the reception and since the tables and chairs, along with a full kitchen, were also included, it was very budget friendly. We received many compliments on the setting and it was the perfect place for our rustic ceremony.
