Hours and Tours
Bartram’s Garden is a public park and part of the Philadelphia Parks and Recreation system of trails and parks. It has been managed by the non-profit John Bartram Association since 1893, offering education and community programming.
The Garden is free to those who wish to explore on their own from dawn to dusk, with the exception of City-observed holidays. For a deeper experience, we offer programs and guided tours featuring both the Bartram house and garden for a fee or as part of a Bartram Membership. Reservations are not required for groups of less than 10 people.
Bartram’s Garden is now closed for the season. Thanks to all of our visitors and members for their support in 2013.
