Reception Lawn | This area behind the Arbor Garden is a quiet area bordered by beds mounded to give privacy and a place to relax and reflect on the wonderful gifts that nature has given us. It accommodates 175 guests.

Arbor Garden | An assortment of hardy, disease-resistant roses is the backbone of this bed with a mixture of annuals, perennials, shrubs and vines, all embraced by a traditional arbor of limestone and timber. It accommodates 100 guests.

Memory Garden | Many interesting and beautiful species can be found in this perennial, woodland shade garden, built in recognition of members of the Garden Club Federation - Dayton & Vicinity who have supported the development of the Wegerzyn Gardens MetroPark. It accommodates 100 guests.

English Garden | The design and plantings in this space are evocative of the English gardening style. The lovely wooden arch is the garden’s focal point and is typical of classic English garden architecture. It accommodates 40 guests.

Federal Garden | This garden features brick paths and parterres (beds that form a pattern) in a style reminiscent of the late 18th and early 19th century American gardens. The garden is planted with historic and modern plants to evoke the period. Of special interest are the arches of European beech trained over the walks at both ends. It accommodates 40 guests.

Victorian Garden | This garden echoes the gardening style popular at the end of the 19th century, when carpet bedding featured masses of plants set out in elaborate patterns. The focal point is a raised, pebble-walled bed in the shape of a star, modeled after one at the Dayton Soldier’s Home in the late 1800s. It accommodates 40 guests.

Woodland Garden | This shade garden is composed of spring bulbs, dozens of witch hazels, hostas, ferns and other shade-loving plants. Be sure to visit this garden as you stroll down the Marie Aull Trail. It accommodates 40 guests.
