 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 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 following appropriate social distancing or other guidelines, we may be forced to completely close again.

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.
