Been here for many different events. Lots of spaces and options- parking is a bit crazy. Rooms can be transformed so many ways. Its a great center in the middle of town within walking distance to many eats and places to visit.

The space is great for meetings/conventions. Be aware of needles spotted along the grounds/benches outdoors. Been here several times over the years and I feel bad for the employees having to tell attendees "no outside food allowed when the restaurant is open" as the rule...More
