phased reopening


We are currently open Wednesdays through Sundays, from 8 am - 1 pm and 3 pm - 8 pm.

Starting Wednesday, May 27, members may enter the Garden without a reservation. The general public will need to select and purchase tickets for a specific timeframe, either 8 am - 1 pm and 3 pm - 8 pm. Please be aware that the Garden could be at capacity if you arrive without a ticket. We are open with updated measures in place to ensure the safety of visitors and staff, including limited visitation, touchless ticket sales, increased sanitization and social-distance policies, among others. Last admission is an hour before the closing of each session, 12 pm and 7 pm respectively.

We ask all visitors to follow new social-distancing policies, including the wearing of masks for everyone over the age of 2, avoiding contact with other guests and staff, exiting at the proper times and following other safety guidelines that are in place.

These dates, times and policies are subject to change. CalBG will follow County and State guidelines as we work together to ensure the safety of garden visitors, staff and our larger community.

Thank you so much for being part of our community. We look forward to welcoming all of you back to California Botanic Garden.
