The Upper Garden is flat, but not paved. The path to the Lower Garden is relatively steep (beyond ADA standard slope) but in some cases can be manageable by wheelchairs. We recommend that you contact us in advance of your tour if you have concerns about accessibility. The ADA accessible, Kruckeberg Boardwalk, is planned to be installed by Spring 2024 and will significantly improve accessibility to the Lower Garden.
