Aptos Village Park

Monterey/Carmel Valley



Tucked away in the former Aptos Village, this lush, 10-acre park offers a breathtaking outdoor venue. The charming clubhouse and picturesque park is located between the beaches and hills of Aptos, just steps off the highway and minutes from downtown Santa Cruz. The spacious, grassy lawn is a charming location for an outdoor ceremony, and your guests will enjoy the sounds of the babbling brook that lines the park. Tall, green trees frame the lawn and surrounding area, and happy birds tweet a song just for you on your special day under a cloudless blue sky. A sweet gazebo makes your fantasy ceremony come alive, and your guests will enjoy the festivities inside the grand hall. The lovely stone patio will be filled with the people you love enjoying themselves as they celebrate your love while dining and dancing.
