Photography at Meijer Gardens

Our grounds and facilities are popular locations for photography.

Because we want each guest experience to be memorable, photography—which encompasses digital and film, still or motion imagery—may be taken in public areas for personal, non-commercial use only.

Portraiture and commercial photography require special permission, application and location fees.

The purpose of this policy is to enhance the guest experience, offer limited access for portraiture and commercial photographers, and protect the copyright laws and intellectual property rights of our artists and designers.
