Make Beautiful Memories in Greensboro's Gardens

Gazebo Wedding

As you begin to plan your outdoor wedding or other special event, the Greensboro Parks and Recreation Department invites you to consider one of our City's public gardens or parks: the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden, the Greensboro Arboretum, the Bog Garden at Benjamin Park, Gateway Gardens, or David Caldwell Historic Park.

Greensboro's gardens are open year-round, sunrise to sunset, and may be reserved for wedding ceremonies and other special events on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

Garden Reservation Fees: Greensboro residents - $100 per hour; non-City residents - $125 per hour

Event Schedule: The time of the event must include all aspects of the wedding such as set-up, wedding photo session, take down, and clean-up.

Event Restrictions: Tents and/or structures with stakes that are placed in the ground are not allowed. Open flames are not permitted (unity candles and small candelabras may be used on the grounds). Alcohol, vehicles or large, open barbecue pits are not permitted on the grounds.

Cancelation Policy: To cancel a wedding reservation, please notify the Reservation Office staff at least 48 hours before your event and you will receive a 50 percent refund. If inclement weather prevents you from having your wedding, you will be allowed an 80 percent refund.
