UPDATED JANUARY 2020!
SARAH YOUNG, Customer Service Manager
Your Metro Parks offer a wide range of fun opportunities to get out and explore nature, but what you might not know is that we also offer great options for hosting your family reunion, wedding reception, class reunion, birthday party, baby shower and more!
Metro Parks offers 24 rental facilities ranging from small (50 people) to large (250 people) for any kind of get-together you can imagine. Our outdoor shelter houses are available to rent April 1 – October 31 and our indoor lodges are available to rent year-round.
In 2018 we opened two new indoor lodge facilities, Eagleview at Blacklick Woods Golf Course and The Grove at Scioto Grove Metro Park. These facilities are some of the largest in the district and are well-suited for any event! Weekend dates can fill up quickly, but week days have more availability and come at a discounted rate.
The Grove’s main room has three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows that truly give you the feeling of being outside while enjoying the warmth of the indoors. It also includes Wi-Fi and a full-wall projector so you can enjoy the convenience of technology for your event in the park!
Eagleview is our newest facility. It opened October 2018 and is our largest facility in the district. It offers a large meeting room, entrance foyer and kitchenette with a fridge, microwave and ice maker. You can also rent Eagleview in combination with the Banquet Room for very large weddings, and at a discounted rate.
