Facilities and Capacity
You can choose from various expansive lawns and indoor spaces at this venue. One of such spaces is the Grand Hall, which has full-length picture windows. Beautiful and elegant, the spaces can accommodate 70 to 300 guests for your ceremony and/or reception. The spaces are ideal for bridal showers, ceremonies, receptions and engagement parties.
This venue has had multiple uses over the years. In 1936, the venue, then called the Hall of Horticulture, was built for the Texas Centennial Exposition and included the Southwest’s first public conservatory. After the Texas Centennial Exposition, it became the Dallas Garden Center. In the following years, it functioned as the headquarters for the War Rationing Board during World War II, the Women’s Building during the State Fair of Texas and the host of the first live butterfly immersion exhibit in North Texas. It obtained its current name in 2000 and was designated the first Certified Organic Public Garden in Texas in 2003. Today, it’s not only a gorgeous place to celebrate nature and sustainability but also a great place to celebrate your love and commitment to your partner on your big day.

A Night to Remember
I can't say enough wonderful things about this venue and their event staffing! Both Abbey with TDG and Monica with Two Sisters worked closely with me to insure my daughter had an absolutely perfect day. They are so hands on and made sure to take care of whatever was needed so I could truly enjoy the day without worry. I couldn't be more pleased :-)Sent on 11/14/2019
