General admission pricing may not apply during special ticketed events.

Reciprocal Admissions
Membership has its privileges, and one of the best parts of membership is American Horticultural Society’s reciprocal benefits you receive. Your Wellfield membership grants you free admission (and in some cases, other perks!) to nearly 300 public gardens and nearly 200 nature centers. For more information on reciprocity, visit AHS Reciprocal Gardens. For more information on membership at Wellfield, click HERE.

Trained service animals are welcome. Dogs with Wellfield memberships (human membership required, too!) are permitted during regular garden hours, but please, leave Fido at home when we’re having a special event. Wellfield is not responsible for pets left in cars.

All visitors are prohibited from possessing openly carried or concealed firearms or other weapons, regardless of whether a federal or state license to possess weapons has been issued.
