Facilities and Capacity
Situated in the Rockville Civil Center Park, this glorious venue can be used to host ceremonies, receptions, bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. Such is its versatility that a wide variety of events can take place here with ease. In terms of capacity, as many as 200 guests can easily be accommodated here, allowing for both intimate and large gatherings to take place. What better place to say ‘I do’ than with the sun shining down upon you and your nearest and dearest among the Formal Gardens and Mall? With chairs arranged for the special moment, an arbor can be setup so that the moment is given the setting it deserves. Alternatively, if the weather does not permit an outdoor celebration, the mansion can house an indoor event. Again, chairs can be arranged either side of the aisle inside the Conservatory space. With tasteful decor and sparkling chandeliers overhead, the magical moment can be sealed before the reception.
When the gardens are set up with tents and the appropriate facilities, up to 200 wedding guests can be accommodated here. The Conservatory is a suitable area for entertaining guests. Ideal for a meal or cocktail reception, 50 people can enjoy a sit-down culinary experience here. The bright and airy Dining Area can seat 50 people - or it can host buffet-style gatherings. The Living Room provides extra space for guests to mix and mingle as the special day unfolds - what’s more, it opens out onto a sheltered porch. For intimate occasions, the Bowie Library is a charming space that can seat 18 people.
Staff at Glenview Mansion are happy to tweak the venue’s setup so that clients’ preferences are met. A variety of event rentals (Chiavari chairs, dance floor, furniture) can be provided so that the venue comes alive the way the couples want it to. Outside vendors are more than welcome to come on site to personalize the setup accordingly. What’s more, get-ready rooms can be made available so that those who need to prepare can do so in comfort.

I got married at Glenview Mansion in May 2016 and we had an amazing experience with this venue! Sandra was our event coordinator and she is clearly very experienced and I appreciated her direct, calm attitude. She was responsive and helpful in the months leading up to our wedding. I only wish she had been there on the day of the wedding (someone else was there, but she didn't really interact with us). Our guests loved the venue itself. We had 150 guests and set up a tent outside for dinner to be sure everyone could sit in one space. We had originally planned to have the ceremony outside, but unfortunately it was raining. With 150 guests, the ceremony indoors was slightly cramped, but the room was beautiful and no one noticed or cared. The general indoor space is enormous, which means that even with rain, there was plenty of room for guests to spread out during cocktail hour and dancing. My parents loved it because they did not have to be too close to the loud music from the DJ in the conservatory. We had a loud and fun dance room at one end of the mansion and a great area with seating for tranquil chatting and eating dessert at the other end. This was such a fun and eclectic venue - our guests loved all of the small corners of the house there were to mill around in, even the art gallery upstairs! Also, they recently changed the rule so you can have red wine if you would like to (for a fee). Plus you can BYOB, which will save you a ton of money on catering! Thanks for the great experience, Sandra and Glenview!Sent on 09/13/2016

Best Day Ever
I say this without any hesitation at all, Glenview and the staff MADE my wedding. Our guests could not stop complimenting its beauty - and Sandra was a dream to work with. She kept me calm, cool, and collected throughout the whole planning process. As a bride, you obviously want everything to be perfect, and you can hung up on the little details - once I signed the contract with Glenview, I knew I, and our wedding day, were in safe hands. We had planned an outdoor ceremony because, it is GORGEOUS in their gardens, unfortunately the day came, and it called for rain. Instead of forcing me to make a decision of either moving the ceremony inside, or chancing the rain - they set up both ceremony sites so we could switch it the minute it started to rain (which it did - and was still beautiful). I cannot recommend Glenview enough, from the support staff, to the breathtaking scenery, to the mansion itself. It honestly was the highlight of our wedding.Sent on 12/24/2018

I have always been impressed with the professionalism of the individuals at the Glenview Mansion who seek to make the client and patrons experience great. Sandra is a valuable asset , very knowledgeable. She and Nanette made sure we were aware of the Nature Center and all of the options going into our event, Family Retreat Day for the Childhood Brain Tumor Foundation. They also provided us with great event staff. We had worked with Brenda before and they accommodated us by having Brenda and Sandy available. The families that came to our cost free day really loved the atmosphere and it was conducive to learning while feeling at home. The children that attended enjoyed the day and also loved the Nature Center. CBTF and the nurse practitioners that organized the event were delighted with the outcome of the day. Sandra is very dedicated to providing excellent service and is very congenial. I can send photos later, they are on our main camera.Sent on 08/01/2018
