Facility Rental

The grounds of the Botanical Gardens at Asheville and the Visitor Center are available for rental for special occasions.


The Gardens provide a lovely setting for an outdoor wedding with an indoor facility for receptions or the possible rainy day. The Gazebo located on the Sunshine Meadow on the edge of Reed Creek or the meadow in  front of the Hayes Cabin, an authentic log cabin nestled in a cove, are perfect locations for a memorable day. Outdoor weddings are affordably priced from $400-$600 depending upon season and time of day.
