for your meeting, education program, wedding or other special event. For company
parties or picnics, our facilities offer a relaxing, natural setting, perfect for
an elegant dinner, cocktail party or a Louisiana style crawfish boil. The beautiful
gardens that surround these facilities accommodate large tents and extra seating.
Convenient parking is available for all rental spaces. Large groups are easily accommodated

We are pleased to welcome individuals to photograph the beautiful views in our Botanic
Gardens with their personal cameras.
If you are a commercial or professional photography, filming or videotaping is also
encouraged, and is subject to our policies and fee schedule.
Photography at the Botanic Gardens for media and commercial photographers is $75 per
session. If you have more than one client on the same day, a session fee is required
for each client. You must schedule a time at least one week ahead. You will be given
a pass for your appointed time, which should be worn in full view while shooting and
returned after the shooting. The photography and videography guidelines outlined here
include all wedding, family, engagement, prom, graduation, holiday, children or similar
events and situations. Those who have rented the facility for a function may take
photographs during their rental time at no additional fee. Please review our Rental Policy document for more information and our etiquette guidelines.
