Facility Rentals

Bass Lake Park provides a natural elegance for your special event. The park’s facilities and grounds are a perfect blend of sophistication and the simplicity of nature. The Conference Room and deck offer undisturbed views of a 54-acre lake surrounded by hardwood forest. Landscaped gardens provide blooms year-round and make for a colorful backdrop during any season. This natural setting will provide a memorable and picturesque location for you and your guests.

Reserve the Bass Lake Park Conference Room, deck or Picnic Shelter for your special event.

Conference Room

The Conference Room is surrounded on three sides by glass French doors and a large veranda overlooking the lake. Inside, the floors are a blue slate tile. The interior walls feature a custom wainscot and chair rail. The tray ceiling and recessed lighting offer eight different lighting combinations to set any mood. Inside are separate and private men’s and women’s restrooms and a catering kitchen equipped with an oversized residential refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, flattop range, microwave, double sink, and a coffee maker. The room is equipped with an A/V system that includes laptop connection, public WiFi, 85" HDTV, wireless microphone and speakers. 


The deck is constructed of a composite material and offers more than 2,000 square feet of space including a covered gazebo. The neutral gray color offers variety and can be dressed up or down depending on the formality of the occasion. The picket railings are white, and all covered areas feature white bead board ceilings. The Conference Room’s veranda and gazebo feature recessed speakers networked into the Conference Room’s A/V system. Potted ferns and flowering plants adorn the deck during warm months.

Picnic Shelter

The Bass Lake Picnic Shelter is located approximately .25 miles away from the Nature Center and main parking lot. It offers a smaller and more reserved space within the Park. The Picnic Shelter can hold up to 40 people and offers its own separate parking lot and restrooms from the Nature Center. Two small charcoal grills can also be found just outside the shelter for use during your rental.
