  • We recently attended a beautiful wedding at their facility. Upon arrival, the staff graciously welcomed the guests with a glass of champagne and a smile. This wedding venue is gorgeous both inside and out. The service was impeccable....our server, Francis, was attentive and polite. We highly recommend the Glen Island Harbor for special events.
  • The park was beautiful. The atmosphere was wonderful.. there you can go fishing boating and go fishing on a chartered boat but looks like a yacht. The picnic area is humongous lots of trees for shade. Perfect for parties. The people are awesome and its like 10 to 15 min away from orchard beach. Its also wheelchair accessible. Restroom are always kept clean and replenished.
