The Urban Ecology Center in Washington Park offers a perfect venue for you next meeting, retreat, family reunion or party. Our spacious room opens onto a patio overlooking the historic Washington Park Lagoon. This space features a stage and other amenities including furniture, a portable PA system and access to our kitchen. Evening rentals can accommodate larger groups by adding the use of the adjacent “living room” with beautiful handmade furniture and our Lake Wisconsin aquarium. Sunday afternoon hours are also available to host a brunch, shower, or gathering of family and friends. This centrally located facility in the heart of Washington Park may be just what you’re looking for to host your next event!
