Specialty gardens, including the Conservatory, Discovery Garden, Rose Garden, and portions of the Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden and Native Flora Garden, begin to close 30 minutes before closing time.
They also have free community tickets available every day, up to 20 percent of their total capacity for the day, for individuals facing financial hardship. Advance tickets are still recommended for COVID-19 safety, and you can reserve them on their website here.
While you may not think there would be much to see during the winter, you’re mistaken. Enjoy
Or, simply take yourself on a tour to discover what plant life is thriving at this time of year, including artfully pruned evergreen trees, witch-hazel and hellebore flowers, crabapples, hollies, and more!
