We used Centennial Lodge for our reception - I fell in love with it from the first time I saw it. There is a large rock fireplace where we set up our head table and there are exposed wood beams and large white lights. One side of the lodge has floor to ceiling windows that goes out to a patio that over looks Queens Park and the other side has doors that open out to a grass field which was perfect for our little ones to play in.

Like a previous reviewer said, the venue has no airconditioning. We had all of the doors wide open but it was still quite hot and it was only about 22 degrees that day (a nice break from the heatwave the previous week). Perhaps not the best venue for the middle of the summer.

One challenge regarding this venue is that you can't take anything the day before (unless perhaps if you book it for the day before as well?) so everything had to be set up on the morning of.

Lori is wonderful to work with and very quick with her responses. Their on-duty caretakers were great as well - even the person on duty at 2am (Tayler I think)!

The rose garden and centennial was awesome. The ONLY flaw I had, which I think is really worth fixing is the no a/c... It was HOT. Even with fans on. Other than that they were flexible and my chairs and tables were set up well. Lori answered every question too. Great price for the hall. Would be an amazing Christmas wedding spot !!

For the price, you cannot beat the rose garden in Queen's Park. It's the perfect size for a smaller wedding (50 or less) We were married there on June 12, 2011, and although the roses were not in bloom yet, the garden was magnificent. For a public space, it's very quiet and private. Due to my error, we started the ceremony 1/2 an hour late, and we were told that since there was no reservations after us, we could stay and use the garden for a while longer to have pictures taken. The staff are friendly, professional and extremely helpful.

The Centennial Lodge was beautiful! Great value and the park staff were very helpful. I called alot with random questions throughout my year engagement and they were always very accomodating to my annoying inquiries.

We could not have asked for anything more. The cost was great and for that we had an absolutely stunning venue. The ceremony was outside in their emaculate Rose Garden. Our wedding party entered the long brick aisle through the archway and walked up to the stunning gazebo with flowers hanging all over it for the ceremony. We then walked over to the Centennial Lodge into a private room with a huge stone fireplace on one wall and the entire length of the room was floor to ceiling windows overlooking the park and the city, including a balcony the length of the room. On the opposite side of the lodge are doors that open onto a huge patio area for guests. The room also includes private washrooms and a huge private kitchen with a bar opening.

Wonderful people to work with at Queens Park. Very helpful every time I called for information. Was able to make small payments over several months once original deposit had been made.
They set up everything perfectly according to the drawing I faxed in. They have a great crew to also clean up at the end of the night and put away the tables & chairs.
Beautiful space... looks stunning at night. Great view of the park from inside.
Hardwood floors and a giant stone fireplace makes this hall so warm, it barely needs any decoration. The celing is ceder with exposed darkly stained beams & trusses.

We have our wedding ceremony at the Queen's Park Rose Garden on August 3/08 and it was absolutely beautiful. The gazebo was perfect and the staff were excellent in organizing the chairs and calming my fears. There was a lacrosse tournemant that weekend and the staff ensured that our ceremony went without a hitch. We have reserved parking and we could not hear a thing from the arena behind us. Would completely recommend it to anyone considering an outside wedding as the cost was very cheap with a beautiful setting for pictures. The two hour reserved time is sufficient to have your ceremony/vows and after pictures with family. There is amble parking for everyone and a playground nearby for children.
