Friendship Park Conservatory is a perfect spot for weddings, showers, parties or corporate meetings. One of our preferred caterers will arrange a menu that will delight your guests.
Our large banquet room can accommodate 120 guests. Our courtyard can seat 100 to 120, and your guests will enjoy the serenity of the fountain and floral majesty as they dine.
Many brides choose to use the backdrop of the Conservatory and the splendid grounds for unique wedding photos (a small fee does apply).
Contact our rental coordinator for available dates for your next celebration.
Friendship Park Conservatory offers classes for young and old, and a Master Gardener Program through the University of Illinois extension service, with volunteers on duty to answer questions and help with gardening problems.
