Whether you’re hosting an intimate gathering of friends, planning a special night out with your sweetheart, or looking for a creative workspace, the Dome is a great way to experience Allerton!
The Dome is located on the Wetland Boardwalk in the Formal Garden area of the Park, overlooking the Reflecting Pond and historic Allerton Mansion. Outfitted with six comfy chairs, the Dome offers protection from the elements (plastic cover & a space heater in winter, or a mosquito net in summer) so you can enjoy the outdoors no matter the weather!
Tuesday – Saturday – $50
Saturday + Sunday – $30
Place a catered order through the Greenhouse Café, and ask our sales team about adding beer, wine, or champagne to your reservation! You’re also welcome to pack a basket of your own food and non-alcoholic* beverages to enjoy.
