Parks

I am looking for a nice park around the Kenosha, Racine area for a wedding ceremony. Our reception is at the Racine Masonic Center, and we don't need a park for more then a few hours. We have looked at two parks in Kenosha (Wolfenbuttel and Lincoln) and really like Wolfenbuttel, just not sure how it would be set up for the ceremony. So I am open to any suggestions for parks.

    Wolfenbuttel is fabulous for ceremonies. Otherwise, it really depends on the modd you are looking for -

    Lincoln has a very traditional beauty
    Petrifying springs is great for really natural settings (there are some very pretty areas with the bridges)
    There is a stunning beach in the Carol Beach area if you are looking for more of a lake scene

    Are you looking for a more open park or wooded/tree-filled?

    There's a small park on South main street way at the end of main street overlooking the lake that's beautiful.

    Cliffside park, pets park, and johnson park are nice too!

    More towards the lake. I emailed Festival Park which is near the reception venue we have choosen. Where is Cliffside park located at?

    The following aren't necessarily parks, but may give you a similar feel and are near the lake:
    Wind Point Lighthouse
    Racine Zoo
    Racine North Beach
    Kemper Center


    Festival Hall is where I'm doing my ceremony & reception.

    With the Festival Hall, since all I need is the park, would I have to rent out the hall out too?? We already have a hall rented in case it rains or whatever, and we have our recepetion venue (Racine Masonic Center).

    Hey starry---you decided on the masonic center!! Congrats! I meet with Wendy this week to finalize our details!

    We're using Johnson Park for our ceremony. They have a huge shelter house there incase it rains---I know you said you have a hall booked incase of rain but it's another option.

    I will certainly post pics afterwards!
    Good luck with the park hunt. We had a hard time with that aspect--trying to keep it close to the Masonic but I also wanted a shelter because even with rain I really wanted to get married outside! There were some cool spots at Petrifying Springs in Kenosha--if you don't need the rain shelter (or have a smaller guest list than ours) you might want to check that out.

    I"m drawing a blank on any others that I liked but I literally checked out EVERY park in Racine and Kenosha!!

    Love the pic of your cat BTW!

    I'm not sure if Festival Park would make you rent out the hall too. They have a tent outside that you can use incase it rains. It would probably depend on what day ofthe week and time of year you're getting married. If it's prime wedding season, they'd likely make you rent at least the tent, so that they're not losing money.
