My organization teamed with another organization for an event educating and entertaining 100 guests plus vendors. Lone Star Park was the perfect location since it nestles in between Dallas and Tarrant county. Our guests were coming from all over the DFW metroplex so location was important. Debbie was incredibly helpful with the logistics from the food, to the decor, and even helped me arrange valet parking with an outside vendor last minute when mother nature decided it was a great time for a down pour. Her team was great the entire day and I can't wait to have more events here. All of my guests loved the venue and the friendly staff.
Outstanding Event Planning, from Lewisville, TX
Brighter Tomorrows is a nonprofit agency supporting and empowering victims of domestic violence and sexual assault with shelters in Grand Prairie and Irving. Lone Star Park is the perfect setting for our annual fundraising luncheon in March as we draw guests from both cities, and we couldn't be happier with the service and the pricing year after year. Every staff member we work with is outstanding and we receive many compliments on the event each year. Thank you Lone Star Park!
Brighter Tomorrows, Inc. Annual Fundraising Luncheon, from Irving and Grand Prairie
I work for an organization that specializes in showcasing safety and stability systems in large semi-tractor trailers. We have used Lone Star Park to host our customer events for the last 4 years, and with each successful event, our experience gets better! Aspen Page, the Director of Sales & Event Planning is second to none. I've worked with her on every detail of my events, and she delivers, without question. There's never a time where I feel like she doesn't have our best interests in mind. The catering staff is so diligent and responsive that it made us feel like we were staying at a 5-star resort! This place is the real deal. I contract with locations all over the United States and Canada, and Lone Star Park is by far one of the best properties we partner with. It's always a pleasure and a great experience when we visit. I'll be hosting again in April 2018, and because of Aspen, 90% of my planning is already finalized. She makes it so easy. Don't think twice...book your event here. You will not be sorry!
Event Hosting Perfection!, from Elyria, OH
This event was awesome from the planning stage to the end of the event evening. I was contacted back the same day of my inquiry. All of my questions were answered timely. They offered my group a great package. The event itself was awesome, easy access to the venue, very nice, clean suites. The food was amazing. The staff that worked our event were so nice and friendly. Everyone had a great time. People are still telling me how much fun they had. And several people won some bets! Horse racing, food, beverages - what's not to love?!
Excellent Manager Appreciation Event, from DALLAS, TX
I had reached out to the staff at Lone Star Park to discuss having a special birthday party for my wife! The staff was very responsive and very helpful in both planning the party and also adapting to what was an ever changing guest list. The party was a huge hit, the venue was gorgeous and the food in both the suite and in the buffet was fantastic! Kristen was very helpful and went way out of her way to assist and ensure everyone had a great time even on what was one of the hottest days of the summer. I will definitely recommend Lone Star Park to friends and family going forward and I have even thought about how I could have my birthday there as well!
