Dog Days at the Garden


Early risers are invited to bring their whole pack to stroll the garden's trails on Saturday mornings. You and your pup will have a tail-wagging good time exploring all the beauty and sniffs of the garden.

  • Any dogs deemed to be aggressive to humans or other dogs will be asked to leave the Garden.
