Fantastic place and location for a wedding. A new coat of paint of the old club house could be required and be aware that there are only one male and female restrooms inside. The others are outside.

It is beautiful year round. Flowers in the spring are awesome, but with a membership I can make brief visits through the year. The children's garden is great fun with kids. And A Tasteful Place opens in October, featuring veggies, fruit trees, herbs.

Yes, the ticket price includes the concert. You can bring a blanket or lawn chair. Many people bring in a cart with food and drinks for their family. It's a very pleasant family atmosphere.
