Having had the privilege of hosting the inaugural event on the Stuart and Barbara Padnos Rooftop Sculpture Garden, I am pleased to be able to say that the members of our Perennial and Bonsai Societies were thrilled with their experience.

The Padnos Rooftop Sculpture Garden was the perfect way to have our guests spend a summer evening where they were wowed by the gorgeous setting, had the opportunity to appreciate sculpture and plant life while enjoying a strolling dinner with an added perk of being able to hear that night’s outdoor concert quietly playing in the background!

It was great partnering with you to ensure DTE’s inaugural West MI Community Partners Meeting was a success. I appreciate you being flexible with our frequent requests, and always handling every ‘ask’ in a professional manner and with a genuine smile. We have received a lot of positive feedback from our executives and the community partners regarding the event and Meijer Gardens... the venue was beautiful, the meal was delicious, the perfect place for an event.

THANK YOU! I can’t tell you how many compliments we received from our own team and so many other guests. The facility looked lovely and the service was excellent. You were there every time I turned around, thinking about things that could be better and that was so appreciated. I don’t think I have ever had an event coordinator that was so attentive as you were. My deepest thanks to you. You and everyone else make it very easy to consider holding another event at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park in the future. Again, it was a pleasure and I hope to get to work with you again soon.

The staff makes my job so easy! Their attention to detail makes me shine! Whenever I need to schedule an off-site event, Meijer Gardens is my venue of choice!

Thank you for the great coordination, flexibility and attention to details planning & executing the our event. I am impressed with the professionalism of the staff, bartender and waitresses. The timing to serve food was perfect—nobody had to wait, and the bartender and waitresses left the room once the presentation started—which was much appreciated. The food was delicious (kudos to the chef and staff), and the portion size was satisfactory (no food waste!). The room was very well equipped, the lighting and background music worked well. From the audiovisual standpoint, I appreciate very much the fast response to add extra connections, and the help to add a wireless presentation controller, last minute request. Happily and gladly, I can say that I would definitely coordinate another event at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park.


The staff appreciated the lovely, relaxed environment. The outside porches were a wonderful addition to the work we had to accomplish with breakout sessions, lunch, and breaks. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Couldn't have asked for a better location.

Our experience with Meijer Gardens was outstanding. From an event planning standpoint, it makes things so much easier and so much less stressful when you know you are working with professionals who have a handle on every detail. The staff we worked with were attentive to our needs, very detail-oriented, and a pleasure to work with. I would recommend them to anyone.
