Garden Etiquette

For the safety and enjoyment of our guests:

Please keep the following items at home:

  • Tricycles, bicycles, and skateboards (we have bike racks outside the Visitor Center)
  • Footballs, frisbees, kites, and other sporting items
  • Fireworks, firearms, alcohol, and glass containers

For artists and photographers:

  • Professional portraits require a reservation and fee through the Facility Rental Office.
  • Please bring your own seat and supplies.
  • Please do not leave your equipment unattended, as the Garden is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
  • Please note that certain venues may be unavailable due to previously scheduled events or routine maintenance.
  • Please do not block main paths, set up within garden beds, or disturb the plant collections.
  • If you choose to work in the Conservatory, please use a drop-cloth.
