Some things to consider before having your wedding in the Rose Garden

  • No refunds will be given under any circumstances, including weather.
  • Any chairs, decorations, musical equipment, etc. must be set-up and taken down within the two hour time period.
  • All supplies and equipment must be carried to the rose garden. Vehicles are not allowed on turf areas or in the rose garden.
  • Arrangements for holding a reception should be made at a separate location. The Shelters are not included.
  • Food is not allowed in the rose garden. Liquor is prohibited in Loose Park.
  • No tents or awnings are allowed in the rose garden
  • Runners are not to be placed atop the grass in the rose garden.
  • Birdseed, confetti or tissue flowers are not allowed inside the rose garden. Birdseed may be used once on the road or parking surfaces. Rice can kill birds and is not allowed.
  • Parking is limited. If many guest are expected, a good idea might be to meet in one larger location, and rent a trolley or car system to transport guest to the rose garden.
  • This is a public park; the rose garden is a public facility and no area may be blocked off at anytime. We cannot control other events scheduled in Loose Park.
