Cop Cot

Central Park, New York

Capacity: Up to 50

About the venue

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with this whimsical Central Park ceremony location. Cop Cot provides a rustic wooden structure that creates a romantic environment perfect for an intimate ceremony. Ceremonies are possible inside and outside the wooden structure, depending upon your guest count and desired ceremony feel.

Meaning “little cottage on the crest of the hill” in Scottish, Cop Cot stays true to its name. Sitting atop a large outcrop, Cop Cot offers an array of views of both the park and the city skyline. The beautiful, round structure is made of natural wooden tree trunks and branches with a slate floor. The overall look and feel of Cop Cot constantly evolve through the seasons as the roof gets overgrown with vines and branches, making it incredibly romantic. Surrounded by trees, Cop Cot offers a shady and relatively private space for your ceremony.

Easily one of our most accessible locations, you can find Cop Cot in the center of the foot of the park near the Artists’ Gate at 6th Avenue and Central Park South. Getting to the ceremony site is a short walk from the park's perimeter. Cop Cot is wheelchair accessible, but keep in mind that it is located atop a hill. The private nature of the space also means that restrooms are a short walk away near Hecksher Playground.
