Our Welcoming Space

Explore, Connect, and Experience

Bartram’s Garden welcomes everyone to explore, connect to nature, participate in programs, celebrate personal journeys, relax, reflect, and experience something new.

The grounds at Bartram’s Garden are free and open to the public 365 days a year, dawn til dusk. 

Winter Hours
Some aspects of Bartram’s Garden are currently operating on winter hours. As with everything else in nature, our staff take these colder months for rest, planning, and repairs and healing. Thank you for your understanding.

Public Restrooms: Winter Hours
Open daily, 9 am-4pm

Welcome Center: Winter Hours
The Welcome Center will be open for occasional Saturdays, 9 am-4 pm. Please check our Facebook and Instagram for updates.
Online shopping available here.

In the event of an unexpected closure or change to these hours, we will post to our Instagram or Facebook pages.

Guided Tours
We are not currently offering regularly scheduled public tours.

The garden is accessible by the #36 trolley. Parking is free and bicycle racks are also available. Detailed driving directions are available here, or type “5400 Lindbergh Boulevard Philadelphia” into your GPS.

During warmer weather, you can also take a Schuylkill River cruise to Bartram’s Garden, to and from Center City, aboard Patriot Harbor Lines, LLC. Click here for ticket information.


Large portions of our 50+ acre botanical garden can be explored via wheelchair, though some of our woodland paths should be used with discretion. The restrooms in the stable yard each have a wheelchair-accessible stall, though the restroom doors are not automated. There is a step down to enter the Bartram house, and stairs with a handrail to the upper floors .

We are working to make our space accessible for all. If you have questions, comments, or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact us: 215-729-5281 or info@bartramsgarden.org.
