Parking in the Garden’s on-site deck is $10 and extremely limited. Guests arriving via rideshare services may be dropped off near the Garden entrance and will be rewarded with express admission, a complimentary mocktail and a chance to win a pair of tickets to a future Garden event.

  • Rideshare guests should proceed to the Piedmont Avenue entrance driveway. Let the parking attendant know you’re being dropped you off. The attendant will explain express drop-off instructions and give you a Zoom and Bloom ticket. Once you’ve exited the vehicle, a volunteer will direct you to the exclusive entrance.
