Know Before You Go

Health & Safety

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and for the health and safety of all visitors, you MUST wear a mask or face covering and maintain 6-foot distance from others in order to enter and remain in the Garden. It is the law. Violators will be escorted out.

New York State Covid-19 Travel Advisory requires visitors from certain states to quarantine for 14 days. If you are traveling to NYC from any of these states, visitors are required to complete the online Travel Health Form.

Masks will be available for purchase at Garden entrances.

Hand sanitizer dispensers are available at multiple stations throughout the Garden. Feel free to inquire with Staff to help locate the nearest dispenser. Please note: Hand sanitizing does not replace hand washing. CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever possible as it reduces all types of germs and chemicals on hands.

Restrooms are accessible by the ramp next to the Visitor & Administration Building. Please follow on-site instructions on how to enter restrooms.

We are limiting the use of paper materials. For a Visitor Map, click here.

High-touch surfaces are disinfected throughout the day.

Capacity & Restrictions

The Garden must enforce a visitation capacity to ensure that visitors can safely distance themselves. Consequently, entrances may be temporarily closed when and if the Garden is at capacity. Should you arrive at such a time, we ask that you wait on the socially distanced line or return at a later time. We thank you for your patience.

Regular Garden Etiquette Rules apply at all times.
