ABOUT TIMED ENTRY AND FREE HOURS

  • Because we must enforce a visitation capacity to ensure that visitors can safely distance themselves and to guarantee your advanced ticket entry, please arrive within the first 20 minutes of your date/time slot. We do allow walk-ups that count toward the visitation capacity. Below is more information about capacity and restrictions.
  • Your advanced ticket allows for free entry at the time of the free hours listed only, not before or after, when admission fees apply.
  • Reservations do not cover parking fees.
  • You may show your ticket reservation confirmation on your phone to reduce the use of paper. We will not be collecting paper tickets.
  • The Garden commences its closing procedures 20 minutes before closing time. Please plan accordingly to arrive early enough to enjoy your time in the Garden.

What to See/Do:

Until September 8, be sure to look for the AnkhLave Arts Alliance outdoor exhibition featuring the work of six female Queens-based artists of color, the 2020 AnkhLave Garden Fellows, who created site-specific art installations throughout the Garden. To learn more and for a map of the installations, go to www.queensbotanical.org/ankhlave.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO

HEALTH & SAFETY

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and for the health and safety of all visitors, you MUST WEAR A MASK and maintain 6-FOOT DISTANCE from others in order to enter and remain in the Garden. It is the law. Violators will be escorted out.

Hand sanitizer dispensers are available at multiple stations throughout the Garden. Feel free to inquire with Staff to help locate the nearest dispenser. Please note: Hand sanitizing does not replace hand washing. CDC recommends washing hands with soap and water whenever possible as it reduces all types of germs and chemicals on hands.

Restrooms are accessible by the ramp next to the Visitor & Administration Building. Please follow on-site instructions on how to enter restrooms.

High-touch surfaces are disinfected throughout the day.

CAPACITY & RESTRICTIONS

The Garden must enforce a visitation capacity to ensure that visitors can safely distance themselves. Consequently, entrances may be temporarily closed when and if the Garden is at capacity. Should you arrive at such a time, we ask that you wait on the socially distanced line or return at a later time. We thank you for your patience.

The Visitor & Administration Building (Gift Shop and Gallery) will be temporarily closed until further notice. Indoor facilities are closed to the public.

Regular Garden Etiquette Rules apply at all times.

CANCELLATIONS

If you are unable to come after you have reserved a time, please cancel your reservation as a courtesy to other visitors.
