Bartram’s Garden

Birthplace of American botany

Bartram’s Garden is the birthplace of American botany. The not-for-profit John Bartram Association operates the Garden in cooperation with the City of Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park Commission. The 45-acre site includes the historic botanic garden and the National Historic Landmark Bartram House, the oldest barn in Philadelphia County, a 15-acre wildflower meadow with spectacular views of Center City, a river trail, water garden, tidal wetland, and a boat dock on the Schuylkill River; located just 15 minutes from Center City and less than 10 minutes from Philadelphia International Airport.

Our historic setting is the perfect venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions, cocktail parties, corporate events, meetings and staff retreats. From small gatherings of 20 or up to 250 guests, we can accommodate you in our lovely garden, historic buildings, meadow and grounds.
