What to Know Before You Go...

Self-Guided Tours

Monday - Saturday: 9 am - 4 pm, Sunday: CLOSED


Whether you are a member or not, you are welcome to visit the gardens and wander the grounds during our open hours: Monday-Saturday, 9am-4pm.

If you are a Dunn Gardens member, you may bring up to four guests with you every time you visit for a self-guided tour.

If you are not-yet-a-member, admission is $10 per person. You may pay with a card, check, or cash.

Please park on Northshire Dr NW, taking care not to block driveways nor both sides of the street and enjoy the short walk to the gardens. Follow the signs to our check-in kiosk where you will find information about the garden and maps to help guide you. Although we love dogs, we ask that you leave your four-legged friends at home. Service animals welcome. No smoking in the gardens.
