Welcome Center & Gift Shop

Season 2017

Welcome Center and Gift Shop

For Season 2017, our Welcome Center and Gift Shop will open for business on Saturday, April 29, at 9a.

In 2016 our Gift Shop got a much-need makeover with a new look, new ideas, new products, and new management! We also added a premium beverage station — offering coffee, hot chocolate, and slushies — to make your visit even more enjoyable. All thanks to Kristin Woodward-Vaassen and Steve Vaassen.


April 29 – September 30 :: Mon-Sat: 9a to 8p | Sun: 10a to 8p

October :: 9a to 5p | 7 days a week

November – March :: Closed

Before (and after) enjoying nature’s visual splendor throughout the gardens, don’t overlook a visit to our Welcome Center where the tapestry of color continues.

The variety of merchandise is impressive and reflects our focus of developing an appreciation of nature. All purchases are tax-free.

The welcome flag is out and the door is open daily during from April 29 through October 31. You’re invited to visit soon!
