A green tranquil oasis within an oasis, Fairmount Park Horticulture Center is located in Fairmount Park in the center of Philadelphia, the fifth largest city in the country. It is a sanctuary in a bustling urban setting.

From its reflecting pool outside lined with cherry blossoms to the arboretum and greenhouse, it’s easy to see why engaged couples and event planners are inspired by this unique venue and landscape. With so many remarkable event spaces at Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, it’s hard to pick a favorite at this Philadelphia wedding venue.
We turned to Brittany Glover, Director of Sales – Fairmount Park Horticulture Center, Constellation Culinary Group to find out her favorite event space there. Here is what she had to say:
“One of my favorite spots in the Horticulture Center is where guests enter the “Display House,” which is often the wedding ceremony or cocktail hour space,” Glover said.
“The Seaweed Girl fountain makes for a beautiful first impression of what’s to come as guests continue to walk through the greenhouse. It’s stunning during the day but at night becomes part of an enchanted event space that can be enhanced with decorative lighting and candles.”
