Visiting the Garden

The Garden is now open to guests, every day from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Members may arrive early for Members-Only hour 9 a.m. – 10 a.m. every day that the Garden is open. Not a member yet? Join today! 

How This Works 

  • Please enter through the Garden's parking lot, where you will be greeted by Garden staff and directed to a parking spot.

  • Park, pay for admission or show your proof of membership at our admission kiosk, maintain 6-foot social distancing protocols, keep your mask on, and enjoy the Garden!

  • No one will be admitted without a face mask or a face shield. Face coverings must be worn at all times on Garden grounds 

What to Expect

Our capacity is currently limited on site to allow for social distancing and we reserve the right to temporarily halt admissions during peak visitation times. Visit on weekdays and after 2 p.m. for the smallest crowds.

  • Bring your own water. Water fountains have been turned off. Please prepare for hot weather; it’s better to carry too much water than not enough. 

  • No interior spaces are open at this time including the Pritzlaff Conservation Center. 

  • Bathrooms are available behind the admission kiosk.

  • Last admission is sold at 5:30 PM and the Garden will close at 6 PM each day.

Keeping Us All Healthy

  • If you are sick, please stay home.

  • All visitors over the age of 2 must wear a face covering at all times.

  • Leave 6 feet of space between you and others not in your group. 

  • Limit touch! There are plenty of things to hear, see, and smell without touching.

  • Practice good hygiene: wash your hands, refrain from touching your face, and use hand sanitizer often (we have some for you at the admission kiosk!).

  • Stay to the right on trails to allow others to pass. If passing another visitor, please announce yourself. 

  • Please follow our signs; some trails are one-way only. 

The Fine Print

The health and safety of our members, volunteers and staff are our first priorities. Mandates and recommendations from government officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may change our ability to follow this limited opening plan. Despite our stringent cleaning and sanitizing protocols, we cannot control all circumstances.  By entering our premises, you acknowledge that you assume any risks associated with your visit, including but not limited to a risk of injury or illness. If we find that guests are not following appropriate social distancing or other guidelines, we may be forced to completely close again. Please check our website for any changes or updates.
