"The traditional ceremony celebrating a girl's 15th birthday couldn't have been more enchanting than Juliet experienced at The Parks Place. The ambiance, the music, food and dancing done with the Ballet Folklorico made the evening magical. It was even mentioned that The Parks Place was like the Garden of Eden. Josh and Tonya Parks have a way of personalizing their events with so many special touches--there is nothing left undone."

AAUW Ice Cream Social
"Our first meeting of the 2017 AAUW Abilene Branch was held at the Parks Place to invite friends to join us for a lovely afternoon. We had a beautiful setting to enjoy ourselves away from the normal restaurant meetings we so frequently host. This late summer activity was a favorite of our membership. Tonya and Josh were such patient hosts to walk us through the many beautiful spots in this special place in the hills of the Buffalo Gap area. A great place to have an occasion that is out of the ordinary."

August Formal Rehearsal Dinner
"We love The Parks Place! We recommend it for any celebration. They were professional, patient and helpful especially since we had no idea what we were doing. My oldest son has decided he is going to get married there when he finds that special someone. It's a beautiful place and they are continually adding to the area. Stop by...we did!"

"Astonishing, Extraordinary, Amazing and Chivalric! Mere words can't describe the depth of our experience. The Parks Place is one in a million to hold your venue. Not only can you expect the unexpected but you are going to enter into a journey that will mark your life molding thoughts into reality and turning dreams into lifelong memories.
The Parks, (Tonya and Josh) are professionals beyond reproach. Both bring a depth of mystery and profound understanding of how memories simply come to life before your very eyes. There was never a time anyone could have ask for a more nurturing couple in all phases of the process. From the first meet and greet to the day of the wedding the intensity of their dedication was unwavering. The last minute ideas were incredible. And most of all I must state for the record, Tonya never came across as pushy with any ideas they shared. It was always in a way it could be added, altered or left out without any pressure along the way. That in its self was so remarkable to experience. Yet her ideas topped each one exponentially and all were used.
We met with a few places in town to compare before making our decision. Honestly after meeting the Parks there was no other place even considered from that day forward. So if you are looking for a place to make memories last a lifetime, look no further. They are continually updating and adding character to the property.
We chose to have them cater our wedding and had nothing but laudatory comments from all folks in attendance. We chose brisket and it was so moist and flavorful and the sides were to die for. Don't take my word for it, just let them take care of the meal and think nothing more about it. We had 80 very satisfied folks!"

Spring Garden Wedding
"The Parks Place venue provided the perfect setting for our daughter's spring garden wedding. Working with Josh and Tonya was a pleasure. From our first consultation to the final clean up, the Parks went above and beyond to make our vision come to life.
Throughout our rehearsal (under the covered pavilion because of a downpour) Josh assured us that they could pump the small "lake" and have it ready for the wedding the next day - and he did! They even surprised the bride and groom by building a beautiful outdoor fire pit with stone seating. They readily shared plants from their greenhouse, decorative accent pieces, and hung fabric curtains of our choosing. Thank you for your part in making our experience memorable."

Beautiful Venue for Wedding
"This was a beautiful venue for our daughter’s June wedding. The simple elegance of a backyard garden party mixed with amazing west Texas views created the perfect spot for the ceremony and reception. Tonya and Josh were so easy to work with and very accommodating as they helped make the day perfect. (They even brought out their kitchen chairs for the bride and groom!) Our guests could not stop talking about how beautiful everything was. It was a perfect beginning for our daughter and son-in-law as they began their own “Walk to Remember”!

Rehersal Dinner Testimonial
"My daughter and son in law had the most lovely rehearsal dinner at Parks Place! It was a gorgeous setting with a delicious meal. We were so happy with the service and how beautiful everything was set up. His family is from Houston and they all bragged about what a fabulous place to have a rehearsal dinner."
