To ensure that all of our visitors have an enjoyable and safe visit, we ask that a few rules be followed:
COVID-19 Physical Distancing and Regulations
Please stay 6 gnomes apart (approximately 2 metres). Masks are required inside the Field Centre but may be removed outdoors provided sufficient physical distancing can be maintained.
Effective October 22nd, proof of vaccination is required to enter the Botanical Garden. Please present your proof of vaccination and ID to our Visitor Services staff to scan upon arrival.
Please Stay on the Trails
We ask that visitors please stay on the trails - this applies for both the gardens and the nature trails. This is both for the safety of the visitors and the preservation of the gardens and natural areas.
No Collecting Please
No collecting is permitted, including plant cuttings, flowers, berries, and insects. This is to ensure the longevity of our gardens and the complex ecological community which supports them. Trash bins are only located in the Field Centre. We ask that you please hold on to any refuse until you enter the building.
No Smoking Policy
Memorial University is a smoke-free campus and as such, smoking is not permitted anywhere on the premises. This includes the gardens, nature trails, Field Centre, and parking lots.
Only service animals are permitted at MUN Botanical Garden. For their health, please do not leave pets in your vehicle. Conveniently, there are several trails in the area where you can exercise your pet. Please see the Grand Concourse website or the Pippy Park website for more information.
