There is always a reason to visit PHA!  Whether you have a special interest in plants, would like to share a special outing with family or friends, or are simply looking for a quiet walk on your own, our grounds are sure to please.

Our grounds are open daily from sunrise to sunset. (Closed Wednesdays 8am-4pm for maintenance for the 2021 season.) The Visitor Center will open early summer, date TBA. Check our programs calendar to view upcoming scheduled tours. Self-guided tours are available at our Visitor Center or parking lot kiosk.

In addition, families may try our Family Explorer Backpacks. The packs, available at the Visitor Center, are a fun, educational way for families to tour our grounds. Packs may be checked out during Visitor Center hours or call in advance to reserve in the off season.
