Garden Features
The Rose Garden’s central red brick plaza is surrounded by manicured rose beds, and is framed at four corners by raised beds and tall plantings for added privacy. The open plaza comfortably seats 200 guests and can flexibly accommodate a variety of layouts for your event. A large covered gazebo (22’ x 36’) is also available within the garden. Just adjacent to the Rose Garden, the Milwaukie Center and North Clackamas Park picnic shelter are also available for rent if a combination of indoor and outdoor venue spaces is required.

Contact the Friends of the Milwaukie Center at to purchase a brick to memorialize your event or a loved one.

White folding chairs can be reserved for an additional charge with your rental. Permanent benches offer informal seating at the edges of the plaza and outer walkways. Please note that the use of amplified sound or music is not permitted.

The garden is constructed at one level. Walkways are paved with concrete and memorial bricks. The gazebo is equipped with steps and a wheelchair ramp.
