UK Arboretum wedding - still need a reception venue

We'll most likely be having our ceremony at the Arboretum but still need an outdoor reception venue.  My wedding is going to be a semi-informal picnic style event. I'd like to be fairly close to the arborteum; his family is from out of town and not familiar with Lexington.

We looked at Jacobson; it's pretty but it is a public location so they don't allow alcohol and it's really open.

Any suggestions?

    Do all Lexington parks don't allow alcohol? There are several nice public parks nearby (Ecton, Landsdowne) that you could rent a tent, dining chairs, tables, etc...and hire a catering company. Otherwise, I think Fasig Tipton and Kentucky Horse Park offer outdoor spaces. Other reception (indoor) places to consider, the Red Mile, Equestrian Country Club, The Thoroughbred Center.
