The Humber Arboretum offers many options for beautiful and creative commercial photography. Discover our spring-flowering trees, our colourful annual and perennial gardens, ornamental grasses, and seasonal colours. We also have theme gardens such as the Garden of the Rising Moon and the Tranquility Garden. Other areas for photography include forest trail entrances, ponds, wooden bridges, stone paths, and unique structures.
Please note: With the development of the Humber Arboretum Strategic Plan 2019-2024, we are currently reviewing our goals and policies regarding the use of the grounds and the Centre for Urban Ecology. As of winter 2019, the booking of new external building rentals, wedding ceremonies, and related events are on hold until further notice.
Wedding photography and other commercial photography on Arboretum grounds require a permit. Permits cost $250.00 for 2 hours (or $175 during the off-season, which runs October 16th - May 31st).
Upon sending your application form, payment must be made within five (5) business days. Payment can be made over the phone or in person at the Centre for Urban Ecology. If payment is not received in the allotted timeframe your application will be considered null and void. Applications and payments received less than ten (10) business days in advance of the date requested will be subject to an additional $30.00 fee.
