Welcome to Taylor Conservatory & Botanical Gardens.


The Garden theme for 2023 is From the Heart.  Educational workshops and garden designs will focus on heart healthy activities and gardening for self-care as well as a hearty, colorful display of seasonal plant selections. 

We ask that you open your heart to the Taylor Conservatory Foundation and help continue our mission to maintain botanical gardens for the public to enjoy and learn from, promote art and culture, and preserve our natural environment.

The Gardens and Trails are open daily from dawn until dusk.  There is no charge to visit. Please check the CALENDAR to see if a private event or a paid event is available before visiting. (The gardens are not open for visitors during those times.)


Gardens are open during paid photo shoots and wedding rehearsals. Be sure to say hello to our VOLUNTEER Garden Groomers during your visit and check in on social media. If you enjoyed your visit, let others know by posting a review.
