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 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: what dreams are made of
My wedding, like so many others in 2020, was postponed due to COVID. My now-husband and I decided that regardless of our postponement we still wanted to have our own private ceremony and get married. So we started scrambling to find a venue and figure out our back-up plan. We found Clark Gardens and instantly fell in love, the venue is beyond beautiful and everyone was so nice and willing to work with us to create the perfect day for us. When our wedding ceremony was just a week away our hearts broke to see rain in the forecast for our day. Stephanie and her team were so flexible and willing to work with us through our millions of questions and scrambling to find a back-up plan for if it rained (we were planning on the White Garden). On the day of, the Clark Gardens team was so accommodating and set up both areas for us, our spot in White Gardens and our back-up plan in the East Tent. We were fortunate enough that there was not a single raindrop on the day and our ceremony at White Garden was BEYOND beautiful. It was the most beautiful venue and we would choose it over again every time!!!Sent on 01/18/2021

The setting is beautiful. The staff is helpful and accommodating. Through our planner, KC Cloud Events, we were able to make changes to the layout of the event in order to accommodate rain! We were very happy with our celebration.Sent on 05/27/2021

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.
