Hi, has anyone done or planned a wedding ceremony in a Milwaukee County park? What was your experience? Just looking at the county website and application it seems as though they have a lot of restrictions. I also wondered if they cleaned up the area for you beforehand.

Thanks!

Ashley

Not the ceremony, but we had the reception at South Shore Pavilion and it was awesome. If you have questions about that (e.g. clean-up, set-up, etc) write me back.

My family members work for the county park system and there are a lot of restrictions if you are not in a pavillion. They will not clean the grounds for you outside of their normal cleaning schedules. They will also not clean up for you. I rented the Jacobis Park building that has some beautiful grounds and pond. The pond was filthy and had not been cleaned for the year yet and the grounds had a decent amount of mud that they only advised us to makes sure we don't track into the building but wouldn't clean.
I still recomend them, but be prepared to make the grounds look the way you want yourself.

Thanks, that was the kind of info I was looking for. I think I'll keep looking at other venues first... I don't want to have to worry about all that other stuff. Thanks again! :)
