Visitor Info & Guidelines

Is there a fee to visit the gardens or attend events?
No. The gardens are free to visit and our events are always free.

Do I have to live in the Manheim Park neighborhood to visit or garden?
No. Manheim Gardens is an inclusive green space and welcomes everyone regardless of where they come from.

  • We are a family-friendly and inclusive space. We ask our visitors to help us continue to make Manheim Gardens welcoming for everyone.
  • When navigating the garden, we ask that you please stick to pathways marked by mulch or burlap strips. When in doubt, it's best to assume the area is for planting and not for walking.
  • Please keep dogs on leash at all times and have them 'do their business' elsewhere if possible.
  • Yes the water is potable! Please be sure to turn off the water when you are finished using it.
