In 1977 the Jennings Pavilion was constructed at the Park to accommodate larger groups for weddings, receptions, dinners, meetings and lectures. Large windows on all sides create relaxing vistas of the stately trees and rolling green lawns. The room comfortably seats up to 150-theatre style and 50 - 60-classroom style. Dinner for 120 - 130 is served at round tables. A large kitchen with a commercial sized refrigerator, two home-size ovens, and commercial gas range enables caterers to serve quickly and efficiently.
