Kelley Park

Image Unavailable
Overview
Although it is centrally located on Senter Road, Kelley Park seems a world away with its fabulous gardens and tranquil atmosphere. Within Kelley Park's expansive, woodsy grounds are a host of attractive ceremony sites including:
    • Japanese Friendship Garden - a tranquil exotic setting
    • Kelley Amphitheater - a Greek-style outdoor theater surrounded by majestic trees
    • Leininger Wisteria Arbor - an intimate courtyard garden

Kelley Park offers ample parking close to each of its three wedding sites.

Leininger Wisteria Arbor
Wisteria Arbor offers a a private courtyard site featuring a redwood arbor with beautiful wisteria vines, and surrounded with colorful annual flowers. It is the preferred spot for exchanging vows at Kelley Park. A windbreak of redwood trees cast shade from the morning sun and the unique layout provides for a very special and private ceremony.  This venue can be reserved separately from Okayama.  This venue is a short walk to the iconic Japanese Friendship Gardens for some spectacular photo opportunities after a ceremony.

This wedding site accommodates seating for up to 200 guests and is just steps away from your reception at Leininger Center. It is the perfect place to host a garden wedding ceremony and reception at the same location.

Kelley Amphitheater


Surrounded by mature trees and lush vegetation, this Greek-style amphitheater integrates a natural setting into your ceremony. The design of the site offers excellent visibility for each guest; it makes for stunning videos and photos.
