We do have a small parking lot in the back of our building. This packing lot is first come first serve. Feel free to use it during any visit to our facility.

We do allow pets in our Gift Shop and Gallery, but not into the Conservatory. We would gladly watch your pet in our admission desk so that you may feel free to stroll through the Conservatory at your own pace.
