I needed a new and different place for a photo shoot for a senior, and after checking Menominee Park out online, I decided to go there. The stone bridge was perfect for the "artsy" senior I photographed!

I have heard of church services being held there so I would think you could do a wedding. Call the city part department and check for sure.
