General Information

Improvements have been made at the Botanical Conservatory to enhance the visitor experience. A newly constructed restroom and concessions building will provide convenient comfort for concert goers on the south side of the main terrace.  The main terrace is now a non-smoking area, while the (south) Exploration Garden will be designated for smoking.  Smokers are encouraged to use extra caution while smoking outdoors during extremely dry conditions that are expected to continue through the concert season.
