Parks & Recreation
The Casa del Prado's larger, exterior courtyard, Patio B, is surrounded by a one story Spanish style arcade, physically connecting the Casa with the Casa del Prado Theatre to the north. Both venues serve as home to a number of youth arts organizations, bringing together office, rehearsal and performance spaces as well as a venue for Botanical Garden Foundation shows and special exhibitions.
The courtyard provides a large open area with scenic views of the twin domes of the adjacent theatre, the Botanical Building gardens to the west and the historic Moreton Bay Fig tree in front of the Natural History Museum to the east. Plantings of various types of palms set off each of the corners of the plaza area. Use of kitchen facilities in the adjacent Casa is included in the rental fee.
Floor plan is available.
Please be aware that the Casa is home to a number of organizations and activities, such as flower shows or dance/musical rehearsal, which may be in progress during your event. We cannot predict the sound level or distraction that these activities may produce.
