Happy Poké-hunting Guide

Pokemon GO at Bok Tower Gardens

We’re so excited to introduce Bok Tower Gardens to a new generation of enthusiasts. Visitors have always said that everyone comes to the Gardens for a different reason. Some come for peacefulness and tranquility, others come for musical events, and with new garden spaces opening very soon we are ready to attract an even wider audience than ever before.

Welcome, Poké-hunters

Bok Tower Gardens was founded as a bird sanctuary, a haven for wildlife to live without the fear of being hunted. And that mission is not changing anytime soon. However, with the launch of Pokémon GO we are encouraging our guests to fill their Pokédex with plenty of digital bounty. Armed with only your smartphone, do your best to catch every last one of the little virtual Pokémon creatures that are highly attracted to places of arts and culture across the nation. Other gardens and museums are wonderful places to test your skills, so we’ve put together a short guide to help you on your way to an enjoyable safari through the wild of Bok Tower Gardens.

Dear members and friends,

After 6 ½ years at Bok Tower Gardens, I am leaving my position as Membership Manager. This Friday, April 29, will be my last day.

I want you all to know how much I have enjoyed working at the Gardens. The personal relationships that I have formed with many of you have been very special to me. I will always treasure the wonderful memories I have made during my time here!

I am happy to announce that Marilyn Knowlton will be joining the department as Development Assistant. I know you will all enjoy getting to know her! Until her arrival mid-May you can contact Julie Diaz, Development Manager, with any questions regarding your membership at jdiaz@boktower.org.

I will miss seeing you at the Gardens!
