Calling All UCF Football Fans! You can now reserve the Timothy R. Newman Nature Pavilion for TAILGATING during football season! Make your reservation now!


Situated on Gemini Blvd. across from Parking Garage C the nature pavilion is nestled in a beautiful setting within earshot of Spectrum Stadium, and is just a short walk to the stadium through the Arboretum or along Gemini Blvd.

The Pavilion is a covered, open air space with a large grill, picnic tables, ceiling fans, and electrical outlets powered by rooftop solar panels. It holds up to 80 people so it is perfect for company tailgates and other large football parties. Onsite parking is included in the cost.

Gather your friends, family, and co-workers and come support our UCF Knight Football Team this Fall while enjoying the Arboretum at the same time.
