Description:

Located approximately 45 miles west of Chicago, and nestled at the edge of 130 acres of oak woodlands, wetlands and prairies, the Hickory Knolls Discovery Center offers a unique blend of rustic nature and contemporary comforts. The LEED-certified facility features scenic views and an open floor plan. Hickory Knolls Discovery Center is the perfect place to host your family-friendly wedding celebration. Exchange heartfelt vows in a whimsical outdoor ceremony that features towering oak trees, or pledge your love beneath the rustic outdoor pavilion, which includes a stone fireplace. You may also opt for a romantic ceremony in the center's Exhibit Hall or customizable Twinleaf Rooms. The spacious lobby soars more than 20 feet in height, with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame views of the oak savanna just outside the doors. This space is the perfect space for treating your guests to a unique cocktail hour experience. The center has a wide range of attractions to appeal to visitors of all ages including live animal displays, interactive floor-to-ceiling murals, an indoor turtle pond, wetland exhibit, and more! After cocktail hour reunite with your guests in the Twinleaf East and/or West. The rooms can be divided into two separate areas to better accommodate smaller gatherings.
