Know Before You Go

Bok Tower Gardens is currently resurfacing some of our primary garden paths to be better accessible for all our visitors. When this resurfacing is complete, our pathways will be ADA compliant with a grade of no more than 5%. This will allow persons with disabilities and parents with young children to have better access and navigate the Gardens with ease.

During this project, some of our paths will be closed to the public. Upon your arrival to the Gardens, our staff will provide you with the most up-to-date pathway closures. The tentative completion date of this project is mid-September, 2014. MORE
