About Garvan Woodland Gardens

The Gardens offers an array of beautiful venues for hosting special events like class reunions, anniversaries, birthday parties, and more. Set on a hillside overlooking Lake Hamilton, the majestic Anthony Chapel is a serene haven nestled among the dense pines and hardwoods of Garvan Woodland Gardens. An elegant blend of native wood, glass, and stone, the 160-seat chapel boasts a soaring vaulted glass ceiling surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, amassing more than 9,860 square feet of glass that reveals the woodland canopy and sky above and surrounds visitors with breathtaking views of Lake Hamilton and the surrounding forest. The first monument in the Gardens, the Garvan Pavilion offers a beautiful setting for a ceremony and/or reception for up to 150, with extensive flagstone paving and native Arkansas boulder accents to increase the architectural presence of the structure in the Gardens. The Magnolia Room at the Pratt Welcome Center offers a wall of windows with stunning views of the Garden of the Pine Wind, the Ellen Edmondson Great Lawn, and the Flowering Border. Surroundings of native woods and flagstone floors enhance the natural beauty outside. The Magnolia Room easily accommodates 80 seated to 120 standing guests, with an adjacent serving kitchen and restroom facilities on site.
