Sappington Park, owned by the City of Crestwood, offers an everyday 2.5-acre landscaped retreat for nature lovers. However the park can be the setting for special event rentals. Weddings are the primary special events hosted on the property, but gatherings such as family and class reunions and parties for any occasion can be held during the six months from mid-April through mid-October. For Crestwood residents the two-hour rental fee is $100 and for others $150, along with a $100 refundable damage deposit, payable to hold the reservation. Chairs are not included in the fee.
The natural idyllic venue features lush lawns with mature trees and a small lake and fountain. Onsite is the Thomas Sappington House Museum, a stunning model of Federal architecture built in 1808. To the west of the historic home is located a beautiful formal flower garden tended by the Crestwood Area Federated Woman’s Garden Club. An herb garden as well as inviting pollinator flower beds and potted plants also grace Sappington Park. For outdoor special events, the grounds can accommodate ten for an intimate affair or 200 for a seated ceremony, with ample parking for either size.
Sappington Park includes The Barn restaurant, a rare asset in a city park, but one which adds catering and indoor dimensions to events. Consider a custom-designed picnic lunch, five-course dinner, an hors d’oeuvres reception or anything in-between. Depending on numbers, the guests could be seated in the rustic interior or on the covered brick patio or under a tent.
Whether you visualize a casual or elegant event, Sappington Park is a canvas waiting for you to create your very special event.
