Beneath the peaks of majestic Mount Diablo, in the picturesque and thriving city of Walnut Creek, rests The Gardens at Heather Farm. With six acres of beautiful terrain and a variety of indoor and outdoor areas, this serene and stylish locale in the “Jewel of the East Bay” is an ideal place to host a wedding, party, meeting, memorial or other special occasion.

A year-round, working demonstration garden, the tree-lined property features lush, natural landscapes full of diverse plant life with pathways that wander beneath cherry blossoms, along waterfalls, and among thousands of colorful flowers. Full of rustic charm and earthy enchantment, The Gardens offers comfort and flexibility in intimate, customizable event spaces.
