The outdoor spaces of the Wellesley College Botanic Gardens are open daily, dawn to dusk. The Ferguson Greenhouses are open from 8 am to 4 pm every day of the year. The Visitor Center is open daily during the academic year from 10 am to 4 pm.
There is no charge for entrance to the Wellesley College Botanic Gardens, and tours are free. To arrange a docent-guided tour or bring a large group to the greenhouses (more than a family or two), please contact the Friends of Wellesley College Botanic Gardens: email@example.com or (781) 283-3094. Classes and other groups use the greenhouses, so it's a good idea to call ahead if you want to be sure to see all of the available greenhouses. Two weeks' advance notice is needed to schedule a tour.
The Wellesley College Botanic Gardens' Visitor Center is adjacent to the Science Center and greenhouses. All visitors to the Wellesley College Botanic Gardens should park in Wellesley College's Gray Lot. For visitors with a handicap plate or placard: one handicap space is available right in front of the Visitor Center.
Participants in classes and programs held at the Wellesley College Botanic Gardens' Visitor Center should note: during the academic year when the College is in session, parking on campus is restricted. Use of the College's Davis Parking Facility or carpooling from off-campus is strongly encouraged.
