more Facility Use and Weddings

roseG more Facility Use and WeddingsThe Botanic Gardens grounds are free and open to the public. There is no fence around the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens. However, if you want to be assured of the exclusive use of a landscape, please schedule that use with us. The scheduling of an outdoors grounds-​​use is mainly limited to weddings and other family or large group celebrations.

The site most commonly used for weddings is our Peace Garden located just north of the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Conservatory, however, other sites have also been used with success including a small gazebo, Discovery Pond Gazebo and other areas. Come in and walk our grounds to view the Peace garden or any other possible areas. Click here for a map of our grounds.

Grounds uses and rentals are best limited to under 150 participants as there is limited space and even more limited parking. For all grounds use, participants are encouraged to carpool, or bicycle whenever possible.

The Peace Garden is a common site for weddings but other areas of the grounds may be available. The grounds use rental form has more information and answers most of your questions about scheduling a wedding or event on our grounds.

Inside Room Use Rentals

The Gardens has very limited inside room or conservatory rentals, as most of the space is either being used by staff and volunteers or there is not staff available to keep the room open.

On rare occasions the Gardens allows indoor use for very small weddings (20 or less), or for not for profit groups during weekday hours on a once per year basis.

Please call for availability during business hours.

Weddings

Until further notice we are not accepting wedding reservations for 2014. Until we determine our renovation/​expansion construction schedule, we cannot guarantee a site. Please call (307−637−6458) or check this web site for updates. Sorry for any inconvenience.

When we resume taking reservations for weddings, please call or stop in (weekdays only) to check for availability. You will also need to complete the Wedding Reservation Form and return it with the fee to the Gardens. Your date and reservation will be confirmed when we receive your payment and completed reservation form.  View photos of weddings at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens: Click Here.
