Weddings & Receptions - Corporate Events - Parties of all kinds

The BALL ROOM, located on the upper floor of the historic pavilion at the heart of John Ball Park, makes an iconic event location. The BALL ROOM used to be a theatre and some of its drama can still be seen in the high ceiling and spotlights. A spacious, partially covered veranda overlooks the colorful rose garden making this a very versatile indoor/outdoor space. Three double doors and floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides bring the park setting inside.

The BALL ROOM comes equipped with audio/visual equipment and screen, a prep kitchen, and two rest rooms. All this is located just a short walk from the parking lot.
