Event Center


Chosen as one of the best nature centers in California, Agua Hedionda Nature Center is home to 400 acres of cherished watersheds in coastal Carlsbad, San Diego. It's also a perfect backdrop for a nature and water lover's wedding. Picturesque lagoon views and gardens galore are what you’ll find at this invaluable community center whose mission is to inspire people through education and outreach to preserve Agua Hedionda as an accessible and healthy watershed. The Rotunda Room features wood beam cathedral ceilings, a candelabra chandelier and a subtle color scheme to suite any occasion. Enjoy the spectacular sunset from the double doors that open to the back patio and native gardens. The main patio is a favorite setting to wine, dine, and dance. The panoramic lagoon views make a gorgeous backdrop. Couples enjoy exchanging their vows under the gazebo and then celebrating with their intimate friends. You can choose a “wedding with a cause” that will support this invaluable venue and what it stands for by celebrating your magical day here.
