Another summer season is rapidly coming to an end. Fall will be here before you know it, and then the looming promise of cold months, snow, and ice. Don’t let that stop you from planning a family event or a party. Having friends and family around is one of the best ways to beat the winter blues, but there are issues that arise. When you want to host large groups of people at your home, parking is difficult, the bathrooms get overworked, trash piles up fast and there isn’t enough kitchen space to prepare large meals. The Rec Park wants to help you with those issues.

Our assembly room is available for rent, but what does it include? GARA has sixty-four tables (six-foot), eighty plastic chairs, bathroom facilities, a sound system, a projector, and enough parking for all your guests. You can also tack on the kitchen rental which gives you access to an industrial oven, fridge and freezer access, and plenty of counter space.
