For wedding photography and outdoor gatherings or services, the Rotary Riverside Park and Gazebo provide a perfect setting. Located adjacent to the Belknap Mill, the city-owned park is beautifully landscaped with an old-fashioned, open-air gazebo.
Then come on inside to dine and dance the night away, in our 3rd floor Rose Chertok Gallery.
Situated alongside the Winnipesaukee River with lovely gardens and shrubbery, the Rotary Riverside Park comes alive during the summer with free, weekly outdoor concerts, and it is perfect for a picnic or a place to sit and enjoy the scenery.
