Garden Falls

A place where your dreams do come true!
Greek’s Playland, Inc. is a non-profit organization, number 226-289-923/000. With no paid employees, its Board of Directors, are all volunteers with myself as President. My name is Spiro Drake, alias The Greek. I have been the sole financier of Greeks’ Playland, Inc. for 40 years.
August 2013, I closed Wholesale nursery and that ended my cash flow. For 50 years I did landscaping, built pools & cabanas in 3 states. I made a lot of money so I built and operated Greek’s Playland & The Stone Museum. In Greeks Playland there are 9 & 18 hole miniature golf courses that are covered and barrier free. The only ones like it in the world! It also has a large barrier free maze, Happy the 50 foot clown, holding a two foot bottle of coke, The world’s largest tire park, a McDonald play area including The Hamburglar, etc. This area is used by Greeks Playland for their free parties and is not open to the public. Garden Falls gives 10% of all rentals to Greeks Playland and the Stone Museum and does all of the maintenance.
Inside the free Stone Museum there are: rocks & fossils, fluorescent minerals, dinosaur eggs and Native American artifacts. etc. The museum displays over 1,800 specimens from around the world which visitors can touch. Outside, for the kids: we have Monroe the Dino, a tall Dinosaur replica in a stone-like enclosure that growls with real ferocity. There’s a M60 tank, an apache helicopter, a 1955 Fire Truck, 2 of Jim Gary’s dinosaurs, Pat Carmella’s original shoe shop, etc. Since 1973, over 100,000 underprivileged and handicapped children and adults have spent a free day here. At The Stone Museum, our curator has conducted over 800 free tours. The Stone Museum is open to the public, and has always had Free Admission. No fees or donations have ever been accepted from visitors. On the reverse side is a list of some of the groups that have enjoyed a free day. Garden Falls has 4 Banquet Halls on the 87 acre site which are used for weddings and other special events. On our website ( there is a list of prices that are very reasonable, and this will help to ensure easy rentals. As long as there are weddings Garden Falls will be able to continue funding Greek’s Playland and The Stone Museum. Garden Falls has all local and state approvals. Music can be played until midnight and is open from May 1st to November 7th.
The price includes the room rental, large barrier free restrooms with attendants, trash containers, tables & chairs, 400 blacktop barrier free parking spaces for cars and vans and a stone parking lot for 300 cars and buses (all on site). Also a heliport, a large undercover barrier free playground, 10 waterfalls, 2 lakes, 4 bridges, etc., a great place for photos. Catering is not included. All catering, decorating, DJ, event planners, helicopter & limo services, etc., are done by offsite vendors. Vendors are welcome to visit and use the facility. We do not charge them anything, all they have to do is do a good job, if not – they can never come back. We are open every weekend from 11am to 4pm. Call Patty the Banquet Manager for appointment at (cell-732-446-5900 or the office at 732-565-3333).
Last year Greeks Playland Inc. hosted Octoberfest and there were over 400 guests. Some of them have been coming here for over 10 years. I am an orphan and they are like the family that I never had. This year Octoberfest will be on Wednesday October 14th, 2015 from 10am until 2pm. If you would like a Garden Wedding that is different, check out our website: Garden Falls still has weekend dates available for 2015. If you would like to know more about this project, please visit:
