Due to inclement weather, the Garden is closing today (1/16) at 2 pm. Last entry at 1 pm.
As we celebrate the New Year, we continue our commitment to making the grounds and facilities of the Garden as accessible as possible to all who visit. For the next several weeks, contruction in the Garden may make certain paths and areas inaccessible. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding.
