Lovely venue for an intimate wedding and reception.Easy to find, plenty of parking. The outdoor areas were well groomed and clean and the inside was spacious. The ceremony under the huge tree was just perfect. There's a kitchen area to prep food or you can have the event catered.Tables and chairs are provided. Bathrooms were clean.Security included a city police officer. More...

My daughter got married here on 11/11. The grounds are lovely for a wedding and most people are in the shade for the outside ceremony. Linda was extremely accommodating and helpful. We have a wonderful memory there! More...
When I was a little girl in the '70s, my Mother was a Wedding Planner and she did a wedding here and I was enchanted. When I got married here in the '90s, I couldn't imagine any other place to be married. It was perfect for the ceremony and reception and the garden setting is just beautiful. I have been attending the Phoenix Rose Society's Annual Tea for several years and I love coming back and seeing the venue. It's been very well kept and I'm considering having a 25th Anniversary Party here. More...
Attended a family member’s wedding. The outdoor garden area was a very nice setting for the ceremony. The reception was inside; I actually liked the two rooms - those that wanted to talk were far enough away from the DJ. More...
Very exceptional group! Lots of knowledge here in regards to bugs, rose or vegetable gardening. Supporr the community & become a member, everyone is welcome if you like roses & gardening.
Great open area for a reception. Nice mature landscaping with a Feng shui personality.
We went with friends to a bonsai tree showing. It was very nice and clean and the staff for the event could not have been more pleasant.
We were married here in 9/2015, a beautiful venue and wonderful staff. This is the venue to use if you are looking for a small diy kind of place.
I loved this place! My wedding turned out so beautiful. Lynda is great to work with and the venue is perfect. Great place for a brunch wedding ☺️
Going to get married here in October. The place is beautiful and the staff has been absolutely amazing in helping get things ready!
A beautiful hidden secret. The perfect place for a celebration.
Got married here yesterday. I'm SO glad I went with this place! Very affordable but still very nice. And Linda was amazing! She gave me her cell so I could text her with any questions. Unlike most venues where you get if for only 4 or 6 hours you get the venue from 9am-midnight so you have plenty of time to set up and clean up. And they help you with all that to. You can use your own caterers, bartender, photographer, etc. This definitely fit our budget and I wanted a venue that let me choose whatever I wanted for my wedding day. They are very nice people and so helpful and I absolutely LOVED the venue when it was all set up for the wedding. All of my guests kept saying how nice it was and some of my friends who are getting married wanna get married there now to. I had such an amazing day :) More...
My husband and I got married here nearly 9 years ago and it is a beautiful place. We are very happy with everything that it offered us and the friendly staff. It was an amazing experience and I loved it. We had a horse and carriage that walked through their gorgeous rose garden and it was definitely a night we will forever remember and cherish. More...

It's where I grew up and will always hold a sort of magic in my heart
After looking around for a smaller, centrally located venue to celebrate my grandmothers 75th birthday party we settled on this location because it was pretty and reasonably priced. Even though my folks foot the bill, I helped my mom with all the preparations so I feel justified to review. The establishment is older and has not had any renovations but the grounds are beautiful and the garden is well kept and complete with a gazebo and koi pond. Inside has a large kitchen to prepare food or for caters to set up in. We had 85 guests inside and still had enough room to set up a bar, DJ and dance floor, photo booth, candy bar and a step and repeat. The woman who runs the place is named Linda and she was incredibly helpful and accommodating throughout the entire planning process. She gave us the name of someone who did the linens and centerpieces for the lowest price we came across. The entire event went off perfectly without a hitch and everyone had an amazing time. There's only one caveat. Linda does provide security as part of the package, there was a Phoenix Police Officer there during the entire event and he was very friendly to everyone as they entered the building. When the party was over and we started cleaning up, I was taking stuff out to my truck and I heard Linda tell the officer that we had someone that was too intoxicated to drive home and he needed to speak to him. The officer told her that this was a family event and he was confident that the family would handle the situation but Linda still insisted that he come inside to talk to him. I already knew who she was referring to, it was one of my uncles who always drinks too much but he never gets out of control and his wife of 30 years who doesn't drink does the driving. So she comes inside and points out one of the bartenders who is coincidentally wearing the same clothes as my uncle, they both have the same haircut and skin color. When that didn't go as she expected, Linda pointed out one of my cousins and told the police officer she was too intoxicated to drive home. One of my other uncles who doesn't drink was already set to drive her home, so the officer left. I was disappointed by Linda's actions. If she was so concerned with the safety of the only two people who over-drank at our party, she should have approached the host to inquire about their transportation before insisting that the police officer become involved. Neither one of them were doing anything more than acting silly and telling everyone how much they loved them. I could see how this same situation could go horribly awry with different personalities so I felt it worth mentioning. More...
My now wife were married at this wonderful venue. Linda the hostess was stellar! Officer White I hope you like the macaroni salad. This place had everything; charm, history and character. If you ever need a venue for any occasion that is quaint, simple and inexpensive this is the place. Thanks again Valley Garden Center.Mr. & Mrs. Chrisman More...
A very dear friend of mine recently had her wedding ceremony and reception here. The building looks like a house and it sits on the corner of a residential neighborhood. There is ample parking and the location is easy to find. Inside, there is a full kitchen, separate male/female bathrooms, and two huge rooms both large enough for dancing. Valley Garden Center will provide tables of assorted sizes and chairs as well for your event, which you can set up inside or outside in the backyard. The backyard is brick-paved with gardens, a pond, full trees providing shade and green grass. There are two large outdoor patio areas in addition to the garden area where we set up the tables for the reception dinner. We arrived early to help set up the tables and chairs and the facility did not provide food, so her wedding was catered, and the chefs had plenty of room in both the kitchen (with island), indoor area, and outdoor tables to get the guests taken care of. This is a very pretty place to host any type of party. I believe she had around ninety guests and we could have easily put three times that many in there. More...
