Wedding Ceremonies Applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Weddings ceremonies are allowed at public, shared-use areas of Cleveland Metroparks. The areas are not reservable for anyone’s exclusive use and can only accommodate 50 guests or fewer.
Popular locations include Squire’s Castle in North Chagrin, Edgewater Beach in Lakefront Reservation, Music Mound in Mill Stream Run, Bridal Veil Falls or Scenic Overlook in Bedford, Euclid Beach in Euclid Creek Reservation, Scenic Overlook in Rocky River, and East Beach area in Huntington, among others.
A two (2) hour time slot is permitted for the area you have requested, so ceremonies should be short. No amplified music or sound systems are allowed. Please have a “Plan B” location for your wedding ceremony in case of rain, as tents are not permitted.
