About the Space
The historic, architectural gem of Golden Gate Park boasts five exhibit galleries filled with exotic plants and flowers from all over the world. The Special Exhibits gallery changes twice yearly and provides visitors with educational, interactive exhibitions of unique plants and local history- depending on your event date, guests could find themselves mingling among dinosaurs and prehistoric plants or butterflies and spring flowers.
Event guests are invited to enjoy standing cocktail reception throughout the lush indoor gardens. The Orchid Pavilion is a separate event space tucked behind the greenhouse, and is ideal for seated dinners, dance parties, meetings or educational programs.
