Guests are kindly asked to arrive within 15 minutes of the scheduled ticket time, though accommodations will be made for guests who arrive after the scheduled window.

Where do I park? How much does parking cost?

The Garden’s on-site parking deck is shared with Piedmont Park, so parking will be extremely limited on most nights.
