Self-Guided Tours:

  • Tours are self-guided.  Detailed map and tour guides are located in a metal box near the kiosk. There are many trails through the Garden and all are open to the public.
  • Protect the garden by remaining out of the planted areas and by walking on lawns and gravel surfaces.
  • Please supervise your children.
  • Dogs must be on a leash and owners are asked to clean-up after them.
  • Please remove all valuables from your vehicles to avoid car prowls.
