We have had our annual anniversary party here for several years now, in the Alysheba room, and have always had a great experience! The room can be transformed into anything you like, and the staff is easy to work with. Not to mention, our guests always love the food optionsVersatile Event Space, from Richland Hills, Texas
Lone Star Park was an amazing place to host our party! The penthouse suite was a great value and we were very pleasantly surprised with how much we got for our money. Our guests had an awesome time and I have already booked another event there because of the good feedback I got after the first one. Our LSP rep, is always helpful and responsiveGreat Value for the Money, from Dallas, TX
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!
