The majority of pathways at the Garden are paved and the Garden’s flat topography make it an excellent destination for visitors with ambulatory disabilities. There are a few periphery pathways that are not paved. We would recommend that each guest use their discretion and caution when deciding if any unpaved trails are suitable for them. Those areas are:
Woodland Trail | Fragrance Walk | Herb Garden Bridge
