Special Occasion Photography Request
Memorial University Botanical Garden offers the perfect backdrop for engagement, wedding, and other photography. From themed gardens to beautiful natural areas, our Garden's scenery transforms throughout the seasons, offering a variety of backdrops for your photos.

As a living museum, not all of our plants are always obvious but all of them are valuable and important to us! To help us to care for our unique collections and maintain our safe, beautiful, and serene atmosphere we ask all photography groups to follow a few rules designed for the safety of our plants, animals, and visitors alike.

Photos can be taken during our hours of operation: 10 AM to 5 PM, May - August, and 10AM to 4PM September - November; 7 days a week, with the exclusion of the holidays we are closed.

Regular admission for all members of the photography groups.

  • Our parking lot is small. To avoid busses backing out onto Mt. Scio Road we rope off a section of our parking lot, even if the bus is not staying on site during the program. Please ask all helpers who will be driving separately to park in our overflow parking lot across the street. This avoids congestion in our main lot during the arrival of the bus, and is safer for the children entering and exiting the bus.
  • Thank you for your booking request! We will do our best to get back to you within 3 days. If you need to speak with someone sooner, please call us at (709) 864-8590.
