Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 300 guests to their wedding at Clark Gardens. This garden park, stretched out over 35 acres, offers 10 venues for couples’ weddings. The Bowling Green lawn is a classic outdoor grassy space. It is the perfect venue for an outdoor ceremony, with chairs set up right on the grass. A fragrant rose arbor borders this lawn, offering privacy and additional beauty. The Channel Garden is another beautiful garden space. This area features a reflecting pool with a magnificent fountain and tiered walkways. This paved area also includes cherub statues, flowers and shrubbery. It has two covered pavilions for ceremonies, cocktail hours or small receptions. The Chapel is a classic and elegant structure of sandstone, with colorful stained glass windows to let in natural light. Though it is a traditionally designed venue with pews and heavy wooden doors, the Chapel features central heating and air for a couple’s wedding, as well as a sound system. The Chapel Lawn is the perfect space for couples who want the tradition of a wedding chapel with the breezy freedom of the outdoors. This lawn features green grass and a red dirt aisle lined by bricks leading to a garden supported by a retaining wall of gorgeous stone. The East Tent is a permanently tented structure overlooking the Channel Garden. This elegant space is one of the most popular reception locations on the property. It features sides that can be open or closed, and interchangeable light fixtures. The Rose Pavilion is a romantic open-top pavilion and lawn space, perfect for ceremonies or receptions. Like the East Tent, the West Tent is a permanent structure on the grounds of this park, with similar amenities for more intimate wedding receptions. It sits among the iris and rose beds. Sitting in the middle of a lake fed by four waterfalls, couples will find The Lake Pavilion. This cedar facility can be reached by wooden bridge, and features white tables and chairs for a reception or cocktail hour. Oxbow Overlook sits on the banks of Oxbow Lake and is a lighted pavilion supported by rough natural wooden columns.
Couples aren’t limited to ceremonies and receptions at Clark Gardens. They can rent the venues in this park for bridal showers, elopements, engagement parties and rehearsal dinners as well.

Clark Gardens is a beautiful venue! The story of it's origin just adds to its beauty. We toured in February for a July wedding, and although not a lot was blooming it was still such an enchanting place. From the first step in you are greeted by a reflecting pool surrounded by flowers and trees and greenery. Travel through and you will see arbors and a chapel and fountains and ponds and lots and lots of flowers. It is a breathtaking place for an outdoor wedding. July is HOT in Texas, but the venue is well planted and shade was everywhere we would need it.Sent on 07/18/2018
Ansley and her support team were wonderful and did not stop taking care of us from February to a week after the wedding. A thunderstorm came through just before cocktail hour (of course, right?!) and they sprung into action to soothe the bride, and the bride's mom! All that came out of that storm was some darling pictures with clear umbrellas provided by Clark Gardens.
I would completely recommend this venue, it gave us some beautiful memories that will last a lifetime!

Clark Gardens is a beautiful place for a wedding. KHP recommends all brides to check out Clark Gardens for their wedding venue.
The Gardens are simply amazing. I am honored to provide Cake and Catering services to this venue. This venue is absolutely gorgous and has so many areas to have your wedding ceremony and catered reception. The Clark family is so nice and enjoyable to work with along with their professional hard working staff. They are always attentive to the Bride, the wedding party, the guest and the vendors. This is a must for your next event or Wedding.
