The Garden

Outdoor events are at the mercy of the elements and whatever nature may bring. Please consider this when planning any outdoor event and be sure to include a provision for inclement weather. Please be sure that you have read thoroughly and agree to comply with the guidelines governing weddings and receptions at Norfolk Botanical Garden.


Norfolk Botanical Garden is adjacent to the Norfolk International Airport, convenient to many hotels and to I-64.
