Woodbury Central Park is a beautiful place to have a wedding on a budget. The inside forest makes excellent photos. The night staff who worked the event was really rude, but the coordinator who we worked with before the event was a great help! Unfortunately it rained on our day so we had to move inside, but it was still beautiful!!!

The ceremony wound up being beautiful - no thanks to Central Park. When I first booked with them, I worked with a wonderfully helpful person. He resigned before my ceremony and everything went downhill. We were originally told that we could rent their piano, but about a month before the wedding we were told that they had donated it to an organization. Well when we went for the rehearsal, I was looking for the sound system with an employee and there was a grand piano hiding in the room behind the stage. I had to go through a nightmare to find something to replace it and it was just sitting there all along. Also, I had my final meeting with them a few weeks before the wedding so that every detail would be set. Well on my wedding day, nothing was there that was promised. I had to tell the person working exactly what we had rented and where to put it. She then acted surprised when I was annoyed. I'm not sure why I had to have the final meeting when they had no idea what was going on. These are just a couple examples of how bad it was to work with these people. It's a beautiful venue, but unless they get some organization, I would not book there.

The venue was beautiful but I was very unsatisfied with their service. Let me address the issues. I emailed the wedding coordinator that we worked with a week before the wedding. He has been very responsive and easy to work with. To my surprise, I receive an auto reply that he no longer works there! No one told me about that. I did receive a call the next day and the woman was nice that I spoke with. Next problem happened at our rehearsal. We had a somewhat large group, but we had confirmed our time with previous coordinator. Half-way through a woman (that did not work there) came up to us and asked us when would be done because they were told they could set up there early. I explained to her that we would be done when we were done as we had set this up. I heard staff members making comments about how they were not sure we were supposed to be there or "did they pay for this". Yes, we did. Day of I arrive to a wedding that was just ending. I was surprised no on mentioned that this would be going on. We get to the dressing room and it was filthy! Trash overflowing, floor was dirty, nothing was cleaned prior to our arrival. This was the room we had to dress in. There was trash that was not picked up from the previous event and an ice cream spill directly in our receiving line. The actual wedding was so wonderful that I did not let that hinder the night. Looking back I could not recommend them due to the service which is a shame because it is so beautiful there.

This was the most perfect venue we could have picked. You can have your ceremony and reception in the same place and no matter what the weather is outside, you can get "outdoor" shots in the indoor park.
Blaine is the best coordinator to work with, he is flexible and works hard at making sure everything is just right.
Our guests are still talking about what a great venue this was and how beautiful the scenery was. There are so many layout choices as well. I love that they allow you to bring in your own licensed caterer and really customize things the way you want them. LOVE this place!!!!

The venue was beautiful and was perfect for our wedding! The ceremony was done in the amphitheater upstairs and then the reception was in the banquet room downstairs. There was a room next to the banquet room where I could get ready with my bridesmaids and lock up our valuables. The groom and groomsmen also had a similar room upstairs. There are great spaces inside and out for the photography and everything was beautiful but also at a very affordable cost. The event coordinator and all of the staff were fantastic! If I were to do it all over again, I would still choose this location for our wedding ceremony and reception.

We Loved this venue! It was very different than any of the cookie cutter "banquet halls" we looked at. Blaine was excellent for any questions we had and went above and beyond our expectations for the day. My only wish was that we got to see him that day...he wasn't there.
