The SPVC is perfect for bridal and baby showers, graduations, anniversaries, corporate retreats, and more!

Our tent is available seasonally from April through October. 

With a prime location and a cozy atmosphere, the SPVC is the perfect park location for your next special event!

Frick Environmental Center

The Frick Environmental Center (FEC) is a certified living and eco-friendly building, with intention and purpose behind every detail and design. The FEC is filled with natural light from floor-length windows and includes a balcony that overlooks Frick Park. The building features natural wood-paneled structures that mimic the park itself.

With indoor and outdoor spaces available, your upcoming event will be immersed in the sights and sounds of nature in every corner of the venue. 

The FEC can accommodate a variety of events from meeting or corporate retreats, community events and programs to full space galas, dinners and celebrations!
