Picnic tables are available in the Children's Garden on a first-come, first-served basis or visitors are welcome to eat on the grassy areas within the Garden or parking lots. All garbage must be packed out. Sorry, at this time GBBG is not able to offer indoor lunchroom facilities in case of bad weather.
Tours are offered rain or shine. Students are expected to dress accordingly. In the event of severe weather, indoor activities will be substituted at the Garden's discretion.
While the Visitor Center and paved paths are accessible to people with disabilities, most guided tours will take groups on unpaved paths that may not be easily accessible by wheelchair. Alternative tour accommodations for students with disabilities are available by informing the Educator.
Students should be dropped off and picked up at the entrance to the Visitor Center and are to park at the back end of the parking bays.
If the date or time of a scheduled tour must be changed, please contact the Educator at (920) 491-3691 ext. 107 at least 2 weeks prior to your visit. All efforts will be taken to reschedule the visit, however, schedules fill up quickly during spring and fall seasons. If an alternate date cannot be planned, please request a refund.
