Independent Park Rentals
Independent Park is the ideal place for your special event whether it be a wedding, birthday, shower, corporate event or business meeting! We also have a two day Wedding Package! Currently, Independent Park is only rented to residents and companies in Upper Macungie Township. Non-residents may utilize a Resident Sponsor if they would like to make a reservation.
The facility consists of two main areas which are available to rent. The Community room which is the large main room with a capacity of 100 people and the meeting room with a capacity of 40 people event. Renters can enjoy the use of the beautiful second floor deck, and the prep-kitchen which is perfect for outside caterers or clients who would like to bring their own food. Since we do not provide any food service we do not charge our clients to bring in food, and we do not restrict against any caterers!
