This beautiful facility - overlooking the Rose Garden (and first occupied during the Summer of 2010) - features Ricketts Hall and commercial kitchen... the perfect location for wedding receptions, large group meetings, and botanical programs. Additional features include a classroom and a conference room - ideal for club and business meetings - along with the DABG business offices and Gift Shop.
The namesakes of the facility have both been involved with - and generously supported - The Gardens long before there was even an actual physical Gardens! Ralph Smith was a founding Board Member and extremely active until his passing in 2011. Carolyn Smith continues to be a vital part of The Gardens today.
