Facility Rentals

The UW Botanic Gardens offers two beautiful venues – the Center for Urban Horticulture and the Washington Park Arboretum – that deliver unbeatable event spaces, pricing and service.

Garden-like outdoor ceremony areas, spacious indoor carpeted halls, class and board rooms, an open catering policy and free parking at competitive pricing make us the best kept secret in town.  Our rental spaces accommodate 6 – 250+ guests at our two sites.  Our facilities are disability accessible.

Rentals include tables, chairs, parking and free Wi-Fi. A/V equipment is available for a fee. Each site has a catering kitchen, and composting is available if you want to host a GREEN event. Staff are ready to assist you during your event.
