Accessibility

Do you have accessible parking at the Garden?

Parking Staff will direct concertgoers with vehicles displaying an ADA license plate or placard to the ADA parking areas (18 available spots). Guests can pull into the Garden’s circle driveway to drop off other guests. Once guests check in, they can ask for a golf cart ride from the Fischer Visitor Center down to the Schneider Family Grand Garden.

Is the Billie Kress Amphitheater accessible? Where is the barrier-free ADA section?

It is our intent to make every concert experience accessible to every guest. Green Bay Botanical Garden is an accessible facility and proudly complies with ADA regulations. We encourage all guests with special needs to contact the Garden’s Events Team at 920.491.3691 ext. 113 and every reasonable effort will be made to accommodate the need. As accommodations are limited, we can better serve those who assist us with advance coordination.

Barrier-free and ADA areas are in the Fischer Overlook Arbor. View a map of the barrier-free ADA seating locations. Guests wishing to sit in one of these areas may be accompanied by a companion (or more if room is available). In addition, staff will be located in the Fisher Arbor Overlook and Mabel Thome Patio to offer beverage service to guests, including taking drink orders, picking up drinks, and delivering them to guests.

Guests using wheelchairs have priority—a very limited number of wheelchairs are available to use at the Garden on a first-come, first-served basis.

This service is provided to Garden guests with mobility issues. Service starts when doors open and is located by the light pole at the Johnson Woodland Garden entrance. The service will last 30 minutes after the concert ends to help with shuttling guests back up to the lower level patio.

To reserve your ADA seat ahead of time, contact us at 920.593.5672.
