Dorothy Oven Park was originally a part of the Lafayette Land Grand and was granted to General Marquis de Lafayette by the United States Congress in 1824. Mr Will J. Oven, Jr donated the property to the City of Tallahassee in 1985. The Park is situated on six acres and is home to beautiful majestic oak trees and is landscaped with azalea’s camellia’s palm trees and other garden variety flowering plants that are indicative of North Florida. The grounds are an excellent place for weddings and events. The Gazebo below is the main wedding ceremony site at the park.
