Wildwood Park for the Arts




Located in west Little Rock’s Chenal Valley, the Wildwood Park for the Arts is home to some of Little Rock’s most charming wedding venues. Housing both the flourishing botanical gardens and the Lucy Lockett Cabe Festival Theatre, it is little wonder that this one-of-a-kind location has become a local destination for affordable yet unforgettable occasions. Imagine saying your “I do’s” beneath a flower-laden wedding arch on the green, a sparkling lake unfolding behind you as you share your first kiss as spouses. You can also exchange your vows beneath the shade of the Butler Gazebo at the lakeside, an old-world stone structure that channels the timeless beauty of fairy tales. Host your reception indoors or outdoors, whether you envision your guests celebrating beneath a canopy of lush trees in the Pavilion or surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows in one of the Park’s North of South Lobbies. No matter what you can imagine for your big day, the Wildwood Park for the Arts is sure to deliver!
