Bartram’s Garden remains open to the public every day and during all photography and videography sessions. While taking photos or video, please:
- Do not block access to or otherwise limit others’ enjoyment of the space.
- Do not walk or place equipment in garden beds.
We’re glad that the Garden is a special place for you! We welcome photography and videography for personal, non-commercial use.
There is no fee for projects in this category. Please consider making a donation to keep the Garden growing for everyone to enjoy.
Projects in this category should only include one camera and may not bring in tripods, lights, reflectors, and other equipment.

The 50 acres of Bartram’s Garden include an 18th-century home and outbuildings, landmark botanical gardens and natural landscapes, an accessible riverfront, and views of the downtown Philadelphia skyline. Photography and videography at the Garden for commercial and institutional use is considered on a case-by-case basis. Fees for commercial and institutional access support our mission.
