  • Japanese Friendship Garden - A tranquil exotic setting.

  • Leininger Wisteria Arbor - An intimate courtyard garden.

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

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.
