The Venue


Set among century old White Oak trees and upland forest, an ageless Timber Frame Pavilion stands guard over the water ponds and botanical gardens. The wooden beams were actually grown ON OUR very own Property! This turn of the century farm offers its guests many amenities, in which, other places do not offer to make their occasion as special and intimate as nature will allow in its grandeur. Our amphitheater, lighted patio with a 30 foot grill, koi pond, childlrens' play area, photo booth and restrooms are steps away from our Pavilion. We can even host live bands in a few different areas on our property!

Located on 40 acres of land, Alpine Park and Gardens is one of Mid- Missouri’s evolving botanical parks and wildlife conservatories, that boasts extremely unique and comfortable surroundings. There are nearby hotels, only 15 minutes away from Columbia, MO. We take precautions to safeguard our guests' safety, however each guest is here at their own risk. Please remember, this is an outdoor venue, and appropriate shoe wear is advised. Prior permission from Alpine Park Mgmt to bring an animal to enter our park, must be given.

a highlight at every event! We have a huge patio that is lighted at night, along with citronella tiki torches. In the mood for Smores...we have a designated bon fire pit too ! A fireworks display is optional. We take precautions to safeguard the safety of our guests, but each guest is here at their own risk. We even have a children's play area too! But remember, that children need to be supervised by their parent/guardian at all times ; as we do have many ponds and a lot of trails in the woods!
