ABOUT THE EVENT LAWN

The largest event space is the Event Lawn, which occupies slightly more than an acre at the center of the Smith Botanic Gardens. The event lawn is a beautiful, green, open space surrounded by a 5′ hedge of attractive plantings. The lawn can be set up for public events such as festivals, plant sales, garden shows, and academic or business gatherings such as conference receptions. The event lawn is not far from the parking lot for ease of service and access when transporting materials.
