We ask you to take all your trash away with you.


There are many wondrous things for children to look at and discover at Blake Garden. We ask parents and children to stay on the paths, not to throw anything into the pools, no picking of plants, flowers or fruits, no tree and rock climbing. There are several parks nearby with play structures.
There are steep slopes in the garden, some with stairs but baby carriages can be used with caution.

Wheelchair accessibility:

Blake Garden is built in the Kensington hills. There are steep slopes throughout the garden. Parts of the garden can be accessed by wheelchair. Please call or email Meghan Ray for more information about the garden's accessibility.


A trail map and brochure is available on line. Plant and bird lists are available at the greenhouse garden office.


Restrooms are located at the greenhouse.
