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.

Our grounds are free and open to the public year-round, dawn to dusk. Our Welcome Center is open every day except Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after Thanksgiving, from April 1st through the first weekend of December. Hours are 10-4PM on weekdays and 10-6PM on weekends.

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.

Guided Tours

For a more in-depth experience, guided tours are offered Thursday through Sunday of both the National Historic Landmark Bartram House and Garden. Click here for our guided tour schedule.

When you arrive, make the Welcome Center your first stop to pick up a map and purchase your guided tour tickets. Refreshments, souvenirs, plants and Bartram books are also available for purchase at the Welcome Center.

Accessibility

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.
