Whether you’re hosting a family game night, planning a secluded night out with your sweetheart, or looking for a creative workspace, our Dome is the perfect 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 four 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 – $75 (for 3 hours)
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.
COVID-19 Update: In order to ensure your safety and the safety of our staff, the Dome will be cleaned and sanitized before and after each guests. We ask that you use caution when reserving this unique space and carefully consider those you are able to share it with safely.
For questions about additional times or to make a reservation, call 217-333-3287.
The Wetland Boardwalk is closed to the public during the winter season for Dome reservations.
Dress warmly! The Dome has a space heater and blankets, but is not totally temperature-controlled.
