Drop-in Tours

Explore the Garden on your own or join us for a free drop-in tour!

Drop-in Tours are free with admission and for members. Tours are led by trained garden volunteers and Friends of the Garden volunteers. Topics include the history and mission of the Garden, collections and research, information about the diversity of plants grown, as well as plants of special interest.

These tours are designed for individuals, families, and small groups. They are not intended for organized groups such as senior centres, birthday parties or community groups. If you’d like to coordinate a group tour, please fill out our group experience booking form.
