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! Rentals can range from a minimum of four hours to our two-day Wedding Package. Independent Park is now open to non-residents of Upper Macungie Township!
Independent Park contains two rent-able rooms; The Main Room which is the large main room with a capacity of 100 people and The Meeting/Multipurpose Room with a capacity of 40 people. Renters of the Main Room can enjoy the use of the beautiful second floor deck, and the prep-kitchen (no stove) which is perfect for outside caterers or clients who are preparing their own food. Our facility does not provide catering or linens, so we do not restrict our clients as to which caterers to hire, or what type of food can be brought into the facility. We do however recommend clients hire licensed caterers.
