Veteran's Memorial Park
Located at the intersection of State Route 83 and State Route 6 (Lake Rd.) this park offers grand views and wonderful access to Lake Erie.  There are charcoal grills for family picnics, a boardwalk, and park benches for viewing the spectacular sunsets. Due to high water levels this year swimming is not allowed and there is no lifeguard on duty. The Avon Lake Boat Club avonlakeboatclub.com offers small boat storage and at the western end of the park lies the historic Lake Shore Cemetery.  

The Lake House and Folger Home located in Veterans' Memorial Park are available for private parties throughout the year. These popular rental facilities are often used for small weddings, showers, family reunions, graduation parties, meetings and other private events. There is also a Gazebo that can be rented for small wedding ceremonies.  

The Lake House:   This facility has tables and chairs to accommodate 72 people. There are 72 chairs, 12 (4') round tables, and 5 (6') serving tables.  There is a small warming kitchen with a microwave, refrigerator, and oven.  There is a patio overlooking Lake Erie with a large charcoal grill and five round picnic tables.

The Gazebo right next to the Lake House is not included in Lake House rentals.  If you rent the Lake House and do not want another rental taking place during your event, we suggest you rent the Gazebo also.  
The Folger Home: This facility can accommodate up to 48 people.  There are 48 chairs, 8 (4') round tables, and 2 (6') serving tables. There is a small galley kitchen with a refrigerator, warming oven, and microwave.  There is a deck overlooking Lake Erie with rocking chairs in the summer months.

Veteran's Memorial Park Gazebo

Lake House and Folger Home Rental Times: There is a three hour minimum rental time during the week. All setup and cleanup time must be included in your charged rental time. Weekend and holiday rentals are all day rentals. You do have the option to choose an all day rental fee during the week.

Veteran's Memorial Park Gazebo Rental Times: Reservations are taken in two hour blocks of time and each time block is $25.00 for a resident and $50.00 for a non-resident. You may want to reserve more than one time block if you need extra time to set-up, and taking down decorations or if chairs are needed. If you are planning to use the gazebo for a rehearsal the night before your wedding you will have to rent that time block to guarantee availability.
