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).

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?

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.

The service will last 30 minutes after the concert ends to help with shuttling guests back up to the lower level patio.
