TURN YOUR EVENT INTO AN OCCASION

Finding the right setting makes a special day. The environment you choose can enhance the overall mood of your social gatherings and give your guests something worth remembering. At Genesee County Parks, we have different grounds and facilities to help you celebrate different occasions.

Crossroads Village is a historic Great Lakes town with over 30 vintage structures. It takes you back in time and offers unique backdrops, including the Huckleberry Railroad, Genesee Belle Paddlewheel Riverboat and Coldwater Road Chapel.

For-Mar Nature Preserve & Arboretum is a breathtaking 383-acre park, the perfect site for weddings, birthday parties and business retreats.

We also offer additional locations to host everything from engagement photo shoots to reunions to corporate events: Stepping Stone Falls, Richfield County Park, Linden County Park, Wolverine Campground and Bluebell Beach, to name a few.

So when it’s time to get away, right away, we can make any day special at your Genesee County Parks.
