The facilities at River Park Event Centre can be described as pure entertainment. Couple that with the kitchen characterised by the efficient, obliging staff, providing nutritious flavoursome food.

Without exception, our guests expressed many thanks for the wonderful day meeting old friends at such a pleasing venue with wonderful food.

River Park Event Centre is a fine asset to the district. We will retain lasting memories of an indelible occasion.

Carol and John are such delightful people, we openly discussed our menu, decorations, alcohol and they really made it work for us. 
They were such a big part of the process and thanks to them it was a breeze.  

We are honoured to have been able to celebrate our marriage there, as we honestly think it is a hidden gem.

There are not that many places in New Zealand with all the resources they have, the location is priceless with a quiet setting and breathless views it was amazing. - Nicole Pinfold
