The Hoover YMCA Park offers both convenience and ease and beauty and elegance for your wedding ceremony and reception. Only minutes from downtown Columbus, the different space and venue options of the sun-dappled 65-acre park create a flexibility in choice of where you want to tie the knot. Imagine the romance and ambience of your outdoor wedding at the park’s gazebo setting. You can walk down the cobblestone aisle say your “I Dos” under the classically quaint and charming white wooden gazebo while your guests gaze on from the rustic benches. The ceremony will feel private and intimate as the quiet peacefulness of the towering trees and beautiful natural landscape surround you. Following your gazebo ceremony, invite your guests to a reception at the Optimist Lodge. Radiating rustic romance and a welcoming atmosphere, the barn at the Optimist Lodge offers a stage, wood-burning fireplace, restrooms, a sink, counter area, two decks and a whole lot of charm! Additionally, a tent next to the lodge creates more space for your guests to celebrate. These are just some of the options the Hoover YMCA Park has to offer for your special day.
