The Nature Center is currently closed and unavailable for rent at this time. You can still contact and book Nature Center staff for later 2020 meetings and events.
The Nature Center is available to rent for small business meetings, social functions and other special events. From birthday parties with a fun nature presentation to small weddings, the Nature Center can provide a unique location for your function. To make a rental reservation, please call 720-898-7405. We often have a full schedule of programs and school groups that limit the number of rentals we can accommodate, so please book early (we typically book a minimum of 2-3 weeks out).

We expect our guests to respect the Nature Center and the wildlife in the park. Leaving trash, crumbs or spills can attract wildlife, damage the facility or harm habitats. Rentals will be asked to take out any event trash to our outside cans, take recyclables home, return furnishings to their previous location, and help clean the space (which may including vacuuming). We thank you for helping to keep the Nature Center a great place to connect with nature--we greatly appreciate it!
The parking lot connected to the Nature Center allows up to 25 vehicles, the East parking lot off of 72nd and Carr allows up to 75 vehicles (⅓ mile walk to Center). Please make sure your guests have directions to the Nature Center. You can share our location on google maps or have them type in our address at 7030 Garrison St. Arvada.
The building capacity is limited at 75 people, although you may find our facility better fits groups under 50 people (especially on stormy days). Larger groups may be limited to after hours as the building needs to remain accessible for drop-in guests during public open hours.
We have limited restrooms in the Nature Center and a seasonal outdoor drinking fountain.
Also, since we are surrounded by wildlife resting areas and are part of a city public park, the following are not allowed for any function:
- Amplified outside music (Anything louder than normal talking volume)
- Tent stakes or other ground penetrating items
- Functions after 11 p.m./park curfew--all guests must be off park premises by after 11 p.m. (unless special permitting is acquired prior to the event).
To make a rental rate inquiry, please call 720-898-7405.
Deposits are requested at date of booking to complete reservation and are typically 50% of the total rental cost. Rates are based on reservation length, type of rental, special accommodations and staffing requirements.
