Event Center


You've set the date for your event and now it's time to find the perfect venue to celebrate this magical moment. If you're looking for a unique venue, consider the diverse locations available at the Downers Grove Park District, and host your dream wedding with breaking the bank. Exchange vows in a romantic outdoor ceremony in one of the district's many parks or garden plot areas. After the celebration host a fabulous reception at the Downers Grove Recreation and Fitness Center. The center can also accommodate an indoor ceremony on site. For your reception, you can rent either the Multi-Purpose Room or one of three gym spaces. The Multi-Purpose Room can be divided into two smaller spaces, for more intimate celebrations. And grand gala-style affairs can combine the three gym spaces into one expansive space. The multipurpose room also features access to an outdoor terrace that is perfect for cocktail hour, and an amphitheater seating area which could easily accommodate an outdoor ceremony. When you host your special day at Downers Grove Recreation you will have the freedom to personalize every aspect of your celebration—from the decor to the food. It's your day, have it your way!
