‘Tis the Season for Weddings

Are you looking for a picturesque, affordable location for a wedding ceremony?  Have you considered Water Works Park or the Des Moines Botanical and Environmental Center, both of which are maintained by Des Moines Water Works?

Nestled amongst mature trees and blooming flowers, the Charles Sing Denman Memorial Fountain in Water Works Park has always been a favorite spot for outdoor weddings and the perfect background for those important photographs.  If you’re planning a small, intimate wedding ceremony, the South Garden Gazebo is another popular spot in the park.  For more information, check out “Special Events and Wedding Guidelines” on our website,  To make a reservation in Water Works Park, call (515) 283-8752.

The Botanical Center, an eco-friendly and budget-friendly option, provides a beautiful setting under the dome or in one of the outdoor flower gardens. With the flowers and plants already in place, you can easily save hundreds on your floral bill, and when you add the competitive pricing for room rental and catering, you get more “green” all the way around.  Contact an Event Coordinator at (515) 323-6290 or go to to plan the wedding and/or reception of your dreams.
