Our priority remains the health and safety of our community, and we have implemented safety measures in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH).

The Garden currently observes the following health and safety guidelines:

Face masks: In accordance with current CDC recommendations, all visitors, staff, and volunteers should wear a face mask or covering when indoors, regardless of vaccination status. At the Garden, indoor locations include the Guest Center, indoor rental spaces, and all restrooms. Additional recommendations regarding face masks (such as wearing masks outdoors) may vary based on an individual’s circumstances. All individuals are asked to refer to the CDC and follow the recommendations that are applicable to them.

Social distancing: All visitors, staff, and volunteers are asked to follow the recommendations of the CDC regarding maintaining distance from others. These recommendations may vary based on an individual’s circumstances, so individuals should refer to the CDC to determine what recommendations are applicable to them.

Daytime admission: There is no requirement to pre-purchase or reserve admission tickets in advance for Garden members or guests. If you would like to avoid the busiest times at the front desk, we recommend arriving to the Garden after 11:00 a.m.

For a complete list of current health and safety measures, please view the Visitor Health and Safety Guidelines below, or contact us at with questions.
