Ladew Topiary Gardens

Named One of the Top 5 Gardens
in North America



































































Join us
as we reopen the Gardens & Nature Walk!
Beginning Thursday, June 4
Members are invited to Ladew
by reservation only

Ladew will open to the public at a later date (TBD)

This is a new and challenging set of circumstances for us here at Ladew Gardens. The health and safety of our members, guests, volunteers, and staff is our first priority. This is just the first phase of what will be a series of phased openings, which will be enacted on the guidance from government and health authorities. We want to get back to normal operations as soon as possible, but that will take some time.

We thank you for your understanding and ask for your patience with these new procedures, which we will continue to evaluate and adjust as needed.

* Our new days and hours:
Thursdays through Sundays from 9 am - 3 pm (last entry at 2 pm)

* The Gardens and Nature Walk will be open, but Manor House, Butterfly House, Gift Shop, Ladew Café, and Restrooms must remain closed to guests for your safety.
* Entry will only be by timed-tickets reserved online

New procedure for timed-ticket Admissions for Ladew Members (only):
* Reserved tickets are now required for admission. Members may select your preferred date and time and reserve a timed-ticket online (SHOWCLIX LINK). Timed entry is limited in order to manage safe capacity. (There will be no admission without a dated/timed ticket.)
* Visits are limited to 2 hours. One visit per Member per week.
* A Garden Guide (pdf) will be sent with your Admission Confirmation. You might wish to print the Garden Guide at home and bring it when you visit since none will be distributed at Admissions.
* This early phase of reopening is for Ladew Members only. No member guests will be admitted at this time.

When you arrive:
* The temporary Check-In Tent will be located adjacent to Visitor Parking. Show your timed AD-MISSION CONFIRMATION and LADEW MEMBERSHIP CARD.
* You will be required to wear your face mask at Check-In.
* Handicap parking is available in the main parking lot only.

To ensure your health and safety, please follow these new policies:
* Please follow the directional signs as you tour the gardens to minimize cross traffic.
* Practice social distancing by staying six feet apart from others.
* Face masks are required at Check-In and when in populated areas.
* Bring your own water as the water fountains are not available.
* The restrooms will be closed.
* Ladew will not offer golf cart transportation, wheelchairs, or benches at this time.
* Picnics will not be permitted at this time.
* Trash cans will not be available. Anything brought onsite must be carried off.
* No gatherings larger than 10 people.
* Ladew may close if unsafe weather conditions arise as there are no covered spaces available.

We are reopening in conjunction with county and state regulations as well as guidance from the Center for Disease Control. As such, these new procedures have been instituted to keep you and all visitors healthy and safe throughout your visit to Ladew.
Mandates and recommendations from government officials and the Center for Disease Control may change our ability to follow this new limited opening plan. If we find that guests are not fol-lowing appropriate social distancing or other guidelines, we may be forced to completely close again.
