We attended an Anniversary celebration with friends and loved the layout. Great view, warm room. If you're looking for a clean room for an event, give this venue a look-see.

Beautiful, well manicured park with lots of sitting in the shade areas. Clean waterpark for the kids. Lovely water view. Many organization use it for their "walks" for charity. Very nice.
