We need YOUR help improving access to Garden facilities.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Harold J. Miossi Charitable Trust, the areas surrounding the Education Center will be paved this Fall. The completion of concrete walkways and patios will provide greater access to the Oak Glen Pavilion, Children's Garden, restrooms, the Gift Shop, and Garden offices.

But that's not all! Pathways throughout the Garden are still difficult to traverse. We need additional funds to create beautiful and universally-accessible walkways and outdoor spaces.

By supporting this project, you help improve the experience and access for all visitors.

Major enhancements to the walkways and patios will allow people of all abilities to enjoy Garden offerings without getting stuck in the gravel surrounding the buildings.

- front entrance pathway and main courtyard.
- rear courtyard with seating, and new donor recognition wall.
