The PNE also features several beautiful green spaces, including garden settings and parks. A big part of what sets the PNE apart from other event venues in the city is our ability to incorporate indoor and outdoor venues to create unique guest experiences. Playland amusement park is one of the PNE’s most unique venues. Corporate and special events are offered, but for a really unique team building experience consider renting Playland exclusively for your group. A private amusement park experience is an event your guests will never forget!
