Bok Tower Gardens is currently closed due to severe weather.

Here at the Gardens, we take pride in being open 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 365 days a year, but safety is our top priority. Today we are closed as we expect Tropical Storm Erika to bring potentially strong winds and heavy rain to the Gardens and surrounding areas. Our entrance gate will remain closed to both visitors and employees until conditions improve.

Thank you for understanding.
