Hours & Admissions
The New Jersey State Botanical Garden is open every day of the year from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for most of the year, and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the winter.
The Garden closes only in extreme weather conditions, for example, during and immediately after a heavy snowfall.
Admission to the Botanical Garden is always free.
On summer Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day, there is a State parking fee of $5 for New Jersey-registered vehicles and $7 for non-New Jersey-registered vehicles.
Oversized vehicles (vehicles that occupy more than one normal parking space, including vehicles with trailers, RVs, etc.) are charged double the normal rate.
At all other times, parking is free.
Parking Lot A is most convenient to the Carriage House Visitor Center, the Concert Lawn and the Manor House.
Parking Lot B provides easy access to the Lilac Garden, the Great Lawn, the Peony Garden, and the Azalea Garden.
Parking Lot C is a favorite for hikers and mountain bikers with direct access to trails.
