Trap Pond Nature Center




Located in the picturesque Trap Pond State Park, the Baldcypress Nature Center is a wonderful place to gather friends and family to celebrate your once in a lifetime event.

Inside, both the Gallery and the Multipurpose Room feature exposed timbers, soaring ceilings, and a rustic yet elegant ambience. The Multipurpose Room also boasts enormous windows that allow for an abundance of natural light and breathtaking views of the idyllic pond and surrounding natural landscape. If you prefer to have an outdoor wedding, the adjacent outdoor courtyards provide the perfect solution. Plan your wedding celebration at Trap Pond’s gorgeous Nature Center and it’s sure to be a dream come true!
