What's Up at SDBG?

Both SDBG Members & General Public Can Now Register Online to Begin Visiting the Garden

Both the General Public and SDBG Members are required to make online reservations via the Garden’s new online ticketing system prior to their visit and bring proof of reservations with them. This new online ticketing system is available at

Please note that when making reservations, all visitors are registering for their arrival time at the Garden – that is available during ½ hour increments. Once visitors are at the Garden, they are welcome to stay as long as they would like, while maintaining proper social distancing and wearing face coverings.

The Garden is committed to adhering to operational guidelines outlined by local, state and government officials, so that members, visitors and staff can all safely enjoy the Garden.

“San Diego Botanic Garden is thrilled to reopen our gates to all visitors,” said SDBG President & CEO Ari Novy, PhD. “The Garden is a place of great serenity and healing that is guaranteed to lower your blood pressure and bring a smile to your face.”

When visitors register and arrive at the Garden, they will notice several changes including:

The Garden will be open Wednesday – Sunday from 10 am – 5 pm only (Closed on Monday & Tuesday).

Reservations via the Garden’s new online ticketing system will be REQUIRED for entry during all phases of reopening. NO WALK UPS will be allowed.

Visitors are asked to arrive at their scheduled date/time with their ticket(s) (either printed or on a cell phone) for entry along with their membership card(s).

The Garden’s main entrance has been temporarily moved to the Dickinson Family Education Conservatory at the corner of Ecke Ranch Road and Quail Gardens Drive (300 Quail Gardens Drive). Parking is available at the Conservatory and additional parking is available at San Dieguito Heritage Ranch across the street from the Conservatory.

EVERYONE ages 2+ will be required to have a face covering and wear it when within 6’ of other visitors.

To help maintain appropriate social distancing, our paths and trails have been made one-way, with marked entrances and exits.

Hamilton Children’s Garden and Seeds of Wonder remain closed until local, state and federal authorities deem it safe for children’s areas to reopen.

Our Gift Shop, Feel Good Coffee Cart, Larabee House and Ecke Building are also closed.

Guest restrooms are sanitized every 2 hours.
