I had written a review in August of 2013, unfortunately I had gotten an email from another site saying that my reviews are being disputed and now I have to submit proof of business, which I am doing. Going through, I now have realized all of my reviews have been removed, so Im reposing them. Im hoping this means they are trying for a clean slate, but showing progress is better than sweeping past issues under the rug. Especially since they had decided not to refund our deposit after the wedding. Here is my old review, which Im sticking to "I just had my wedding here. There was poor communication all over. I was first told everything I wanted, then once we were signing the contract a lot had changed. They did offer us our money back, but by then it would have been very hard to change venue. Many phone calls and email were unanswered, then when we showed we found they closed the park that day. All of my guests with kids went back home (From Portland) with the exception of one. I had many empty seats, no kids meals were touched, and I also had to barrow a lot of tables from friend because no one would tell us how many we had, or how to rent more. The lady at the entrance (unfortunately didnt catch her name) was rude to my guests. The "bar tender station" had no electricity and no running water. We had to ask for towels to be put in the bathrooms. There was stuff from past events all over. They put the tables up the stairs for the "stage" area (up some stairs) knowing we had people who needed wheelchair accessibility, not to mention their restrooms are not handicap accessible so we had to rent a port-o-potty. The only thing about this place that was good, was that it was pretty and there were two staff members that tried really hard to fix what they could."
DO NOT HOST A WEDDING HERE. I was considering this place as a venue for my wedding. After my friends wedding this summer, it wont happen. Here is why: The bride and groom were promised theyd be the only event/people there. They werent. The bride and groom arrived an hour late- nothing was ready. The houses didnt have toilet paper, stuff like that. The bride and groom were having people camp overnight - they discussed this with the venue before. When they arrived, they were told that there wasnt camping and if there was it would be an additional fee. The bride had an image in her head if where she wanted everything. The staff had another idea and changed everything around on her. The staff WAS STEALING THEIR ALCOHOL. The bride caught them stealing wine for themselves. We asked if everything had to be taken down right away or if it could wait til morning. They said as long as we were out by 11, it didnt matter. In the morning, they were berated with questions about why it hadnt been cleaned up. We were also told that there were no parties allowed in the houses. They threatened that if everyone wasnt gone by 11, they would lock everyone in. This place did not care that there was a wedding. They didnt attempt to take special consideration that the bride was probably already stressed enough, and they just added more. If you want a smooth wedding, dont do it here. Unnecessary stress was added on the bride and groom and although we had fun, when we left the bride was not looking forward to having to go through a walkthrough to fight for her deposit back. Im absolutely sure there was more that went on, these were just the few that I knew about. I dont suggest this place to anybody. STAY AWAY AND LOOK FOR ANOTHER VENUE.

We took my niece and nephew this summer for the day. I had so many fond memories from childhood at Alderbrook because my Moms company had their annual picnic there. Much to my surprise, it was even better than I remembered it. The pink lemonade fountain is still a big hit! The pool is amazing! They have the deep end and shallow end separated by a center barrier, so we could sit on the edge and let the kids run around in the shallow end without worrying theyd get in too deep. The fish in the pond are so funny - the kids loved getting fish food and watching them go crazy, jumping out of the water when they tossed it in. We rode the little train all around and the kids climbed all over the pirate ship. There is really a ton to do while you are there and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. There were tears when we left and promises to come back next summer. This summer, we are going to try and make a few concerts and spend some more time here. Its so much fun for the whole family!

Im only familiar with attending the Easter activities this year (2012), but highly disappointed is putting it mildly. For the $24 it cost to enter, the Egg Hunt consisted of finding a scattering of chocolate kisses melting in the grass. It was impossible to get a ride on the one pony, being led back and forth in a 10 foot path. The steering wheel of the rotting pirate ship fell off and onto my toddler when she tried to turn it. And the train - really a lawn tractor with a plastic facade, broke down twice while waiting for a ride. Be sure to bring your own lunch/snacks unless you are prepared to shell out and additional $6+ for a single burger or hot dog. Maybe a better bet during summer or mid-week when there is no crowd as it doesnt seem the staff and activities are adequate enough to accommodate more than 50 people.
I attended a company picnic recently at Alderbrook Park. The park was beautiful, with a stream, a large swimming pool, bounce houses, a well-maintained field for playing games, walking trails,goats, and more. Our group rented a covered pavilion with ample tables and seating for 200 people. We brought and cooked our own food, but catered food is also available. We had arranged an engineering technology activity for the children who attended and it was fun, but totally unnecessary, in view of the many great activities available at the park! This is a great place to host a large crowd or just spend a wonderful day with your own family.
I was a employee and now Im just a local looking for a fun afternoon with the most to do for little cost!! Paddle boats, mini train, mini golf, swimming pool, bounce houses, petting zoo- cow goats and rabbits, a lovely creek, a pirate ship, multiple play structures, volley ball, and more thats limited to certain weekends or to frames!! Great food and service. This is a private park that only costs $10 a person and after 4 pm its $4 a person 3 and under free. They host weddings and parties with catering! Best family fun!!! I go here and spend easily 5-6 hours making amazing memories with the family!!! Check it out :)

A great hidden gem of Clark County. I have only been there for a yearly XC invitational but love the place. Its kind-of "out there" in regards to its distance to from my house in downtown Vancouver but well worth the drive. I understand they are starting new events including concerts so I hope to get there more often. I did love the Fall Harvest event and passed it onto my friends with kids as it seemed like a great deal - something like $8 which included a pony ride, petting zoo, maze, bouncy houses, a pumpkin, and hot chocolate. I hope more people find out about Alderbrook Park and help it to succeed.
