Weddings at Reader Rock Garden

Reader Rock Garden bookings and pricing

Reader Rock Garden offers a beautiful and secluded venue for your wedding with four outdoor spaces and views of the Calgary skyline.

This historic garden created in 1913 is a tribute to one man's passion for plants and beauty. William Roland Reader was the Superintendent for Calgary Parks from 1913 – 1942 who transformed a bare hillside into an internationally-acclaimed garden.

Reader Rock Garden was historically used as accompanying gardens for the private residence of Calgary's Superintendent of Parks and Cemeteries. The house was constructed in 1912, and the garden's creation began one year later. The house is now home to the Reader’s Garden Café.

To preserve the fragile surroundings of this historic site, this venue has limited bookings and is only available for bookings between May 1 and September 30. Bookings for 2024 are limited. 2025 booking requests open October 1, 2024.
