Autumns Colors Season

Autumn’s Colors

Now–November 15, 2020

Wide Open Spaces … Glorious Vistas

Awash in vibrant hues and the crisp, fresh feeling of a new season, autumn is a season of opportunity … one that calls for slowing down and appreciating the ever-changing shifts of beauty with each and every day. Surround yourself in our painted landscape and wide open vistas, feel like a kid again with our playful Garden Railway, and marvel at our Main Fountain Garden performances running through November 1, 2020.

Beginning October 22, 2020, we celebrate fall’s quintessential flower with our Chrysanthemum Festival. Our Thousand Bloom Chrysanthemum finds its place in the sun within a Conservatory setting of lovingly tended chrysanthemums and big, bold delights.

Just as our Gardens are a place of pleasure and respite, they are also a place of wellness and safety. Please honor the new visiting guidelines we’ve created in accordance with state and local regulations. It takes all of us to make our Gardens a world apart. 

We will continue to make updates to our visiting guidelines. We appreciate your ongoing understanding.

When visiting, please remember to:
—Wear a mask
—Make room for one another
—Practice good hygiene
—Mind the green dots
—Follow one-way paths
