About Fernwood Botanical Garden

Beautiful gardens surrounded by forest are tucked into a landscape of 105 acres of cultivated and natural areas along the scenic St. Joseph River valley. There are miles of trails to explore. Indoors, visitors enjoy the Education Center, Nature Center, Fern Conservatory, café, gift shop, and art gallery. Free admission is included for all guests of private events. Fernwood’s serenity and beautiful setting make it an ideal location for meetings and retreats, showers, birthday parties, memorial service and weddings. Several buildings and rooms are available.

Great Baby Shower venue - An Eventective User from Baroda, MI

The Summer House has great views of nature and made for a nice backdrop for our Baby Animal theme.

Aaron Greene - An Eventective User from Niles Michigan

This location is a great venue to set up for a wedding. The place is beautiful and it doesn't cost much at all. When we got there to check out the place, flowers were everywhere, everything was pristine, and the people were so nice. I couldn't have found a better place to get married at. When I was in search for a venue and contacted Allison there, she made everything so easy. Plus, the city of Niles offers so much for people that are not familiar to the area. I would recommend the location to everyone who asked.
