They have started a parking fee with kiosks at $1.40/hour, with a maximum of $5.
If you haven’t been here before the main attractions are a beautiful outdoor garden, walking trails through several kinds of wooded areas, and a greenhouse (Conservatory). The two main areas of interest to us are going to likely be macro and landscape.
The gardens are open sunrise until sunset. Tripods are allowed, but like anywhere else be considerate of blocking walking areas.
The conservatory is open 8:30 – 4:30, they used to ask for a $5 donation, but that may have been removed with the new parking fee. Tripods aren’t allowed in the conservatory during peak hours on Saturday or Sunday.
