Due to limited space and facilities, Red Butte Garden requests that guests adhere to the following rules and policies when planning a picnic in the Garden.
Red Butte Garden is a botanical garden, not a public park. To preserve our gardens and plant collections, sporting games and cooking of food are not allowed. We are not able to store or refrigerate any food.
Please pack up and remove all garbage and food materials you bring into the Garden. Leave no trace.
Please do not move any of the Garden's tables, chairs, or benches.
The Amphitheatre, Rose Garden, and Fragrance Garden are used as private event facilities and are open to group picnics on a space-available basis only.
Groups picnicking in these areas may have to relocate in order to accommodate previously scheduled private event rentals.
Use of the Children's Garden for birthday parties or picnics require a reservation; pre-registered birthday parties have preferential use of Children's Garden facilities.
