Venue Rental Informationhighlight_off

The Gardens has a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces available to rent for private events and meetings. Indoor spaces are available to rent year-round. Our outdoor spaces are available to rent seasonally between mid-May and mid-October. Due to our climate, outdoor rentals outside of this window are not recommended.

The Gardens is open to the public daily between 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. (4 p.m. during the winter). Certain spaces are available to rent for afterhours events only. Spaces available for daytime rental may have additional restrictions during operating hours on sound, alcohol, attendance, or more. Rentals can begin as early as 8 a.m. and can extend until 9 p.m.

Please see our rental rates below for one-day private events and meetings. Our rental spaces are rented by the hour and have a two- or three-hour minimum depending on the location.

All rental events include a complimentary photography permit. We also offer special ceremony packages and a youth birthday party package!

The Gardens cannot be rented out in its entirety for any private gathering.  Additionally, The Gardens is unable to serve as a venue for private events or programs that are similar in scope or nature to our own special events, exhibits and program offerings. This includes concerts, fundraisers, recitals and most other ticketed or open-to-the-public events.
