Comprising 12 acres in historic City Park, the New Orleans Botanical Garden provides an idyllic setting in which to host your once-in-a-lifetime event. Regardless of the season, the garden offers vibrant splashes of color and much to discover. The unique and varied indoor and outdoor settings may be rented singly or in combination and provide virtually limitless options for your celebration.
