The Arena Plaza and its main walkway mark the grand entrance into the Gardens. Located in the southeast corner of the grounds across from Chesapeake Arena, this venue features a gravel plaza with trees planted in a classic European style pattern. In the evening, the grand pathway lights up with dozens of colorful embedded lights that dance the length of the walkway. This area makes a lovely site for wedding ceremonies or outdoor receptions with tables set under and around tree groves. It makes an especially convenient outdoor ceremony location for guests just steps away from Park House Event Center for the reception.
