Because of previous damage to our fountains and our gardens and especially for safety reasons, we ask that children be supervised at all times! These include photo sessions, weddings, rehearsals, receptions, special events and tours. Please do not allow them to throw anything into the fountains or to harm the plants or the wildlife. We ask that you do not allow children to climb on or jump from any of the structures or statuary.  Roller blades, skateboards, bicycles and other sports are not allowed in the gardens. All pets must be kept on a leash at all times, and owners are responsible for their cleanup. These are private gardens, not a public playground.  Damage to the Museum or Gardens could result in the loss of your deposit plus fines and the cost of repairs.

We appreciate your cooperation in following these guidelines. They have been created for your safety, as well as, for the preservation of the Museum and Gardens.
