The Castle Gardens is in a central location south west of Boise near Kuna and is truly a one of a kind venue in the Treasure Valley. A Castle and landscaped grounds are regal in status as a back drop for you event. We welcome all that will respect the property as if it were their own Castle in the country. The Castle Gardens has a grand ballroom that is a multipurpose indoor temperature controlled room that will allow anything from weddings, company parties, to formal sit down dinners year around for ninety (90) of your guests. The Ballroom opens up to a patio overlooking the gardens and waterfall feature effectively doubling the space for your guests. The almost six (6) acres of property with the center piece being the Castle and landscaped grounds make The Castle Gardens a very versatile location for your indoor or outdoor event. The venue rental includes tables and chairs for ninety (90) in the ballroom and additional accommodations for larger parties can be negotiated. Our preference is those intimate weddings or Parties that are ninety (90) people or less that can take full advantage of our facilities year around. But when the weather is grand we can accommodate much larger groups in the shadows of The Castle and Gardens. The Castle Gardens can be the location where a Princess marries her Prince or a Catered party for Business or Friends.
