The National Botanic Garden is a new venue and all the support helps to raise funds to maintain and build the property. Once further established over the next few years, we do foresee potential discounts for seniors and military like many others do.
Although the garden is not open on a daily basis, one day in the future our goal is to be open regularly. Our openings remain limited to about 10 events over the course of the year. We announce our openings on our events page and you can also subscribe to our newsletter to be the first to know of any upcoming events.
Although we love pets, and many of us have them ourselves. On the ground of the gardens no pets are allowed. We do however in the future, hope to create an area that is pet friendly.
Currently the garden does not offer refunds on purchased tickets, however if you review each scheduled opening, there are options created to use the ticket at another time either within the opening week, or at a later event based off the pricing scale.
