Safety Precautions Help Keep Everyone Safe

Thank you for understanding and complying!

While we know that experts have said outdoor gatherings are safer than indoor ones, Rotary Botanical Gardens wants to keep the health and safety of our visitors, staff and volunteers top-of-mind and top-of action.

Due to the increase in COVID cases in our local area, and the crowds we have welcomed in the past, we’ve established new procedures and precautions for the Holiday Light Show.

We know everyone has different opinions on COVID-19 safety. While we respect varying views, we appreciate your understanding of our policies as an organization committed to our community.
