Garden Rules and Regulations

The Botanical Gardens at Asheville are open to the public, free of charge, from dawn to dusk 365 days a year.  Enjoy the Gardens, but leave them as you found them.  

As the Gardens contain many sensitive species and habitats, we ask that our visitors adhere to a few basic rules while visiting the gardens.

  • Walk only established paths; do not enter signed, fenced, or roped-off areas.

  • Do not pick or collect plants, seeds, 
    berries, insects, animals, rocks, etc.

  • Do not engage in sporting games and 
    similar activities, such as Frisbee, 
    kick ball, kite flying, and football.

  • Do not climb trees..

  • Park and Walk!  Bicycles are prohibited.  
    A bike rack is provided in the parking lot.

  • Dogs and other pets are not allowed.

  • Wading in the stream is discouraged.

We encourage:

  • Artistic pursuits: photography, painting, journaling, etc.

  • Nature study: botany, bird watching, etc.

  • Picnics: benches and tables are provided, or bring your own blanket.  Please remove all trash and place in containers near the Botany Center.

  • Exercise: strolling and jogging on established paths.

The Gardens are a community resource but we suggest that organizations that wish to use our facilities review our policies governing use of our indoor and outdoor spaces.
