Facility Rental Changes & Cancellation Policy: Changes or cancellation to your reservation must be confirmed at least 72 hours before the scheduled event, given staff time needed to purchase and prep supplies. If you must make changes or cancel your reservation within 72 hours of the event, you will be charged a 10% cancellation fee for the facility use and may incur additional charges if your event included an Olivewood-led activity. If you make changes to your event (e.g. increase/decrease number of attendees), a fee may be assessed if additional supplies, purchases, or set-up is required. We understand that things happen; in the event of emergency situations, please contact Teen & Adult Program Specialist, Ellyse Briand at ellyse@olivewoodgardens.org, so we can accommodate you.

Note: To consider staff time, if your rental extends past the discussed schedule, you will be charged $35 for each additional 15 minutes that your rental extends.
