Weddings & Functions

Borderland’s grounds are popular for hosting weddings and other private events. These events require advance notice and a special-use permit, which is available from the park for a small fee. If you are interested in hosting an event at Borderland, please email the park’s supervisor, Ellenor Simmons at Borderland.park@state.ma.us. Please note, the interior of the Ames Mansion is not available for wedding events.
