Event Lawn

Late summer is a splendid time for the Event lawn by the Kay and Douglas Ivester Visitor Center and Ivester Amphitheater. Sometimes home to large exhibition art, this is the Garden's most open play space that lends itself perfectly to weddings and private events.

In warmer climates, it can be trained to grow as a small, single trunk tree or a large shrub.
