Weddings in the Parks

Crabapple Tree in Riverside Park

There are few more lovely settings for a wedding than New York City's parks. Among the thousands of acres of greenery, couples can find a spot for all types of celebrations.

Wedding ceremonies can be conducted in any of the parks, but doing so requires a permit. To apply for a Special Events permit and learn about Parks rules for special events, visit the Special Events permit page or contact the borough permit offices:
