Norfolk Botanical Garden (NBG) celebrates Black History Month by offering Free Admission Thursdays in February. A Virginia Historic Landmark and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, NBG has a long history with humble beginnings. The Garden celebrates the 220 African-American Works Progress Administration (WPA) workers, 200 women and 20 men, who cleared dense vegetation and planted the first azaleas at NBG in the late 1930s. As a way to honor their lasting legacy and share the gift of nature with all, we invite the community to enjoy all that the Garden has to offer free on Thursdays this February.

Explore the Garden’s 175 acres, an oasis nestled between diverse neighborhoods surrounded by stunning water views – the most beautiful location in Coastal Virginia.

Due to The Garden of Tomorrow construction with LIMITED PARKING,
the Garden is requiring ALL visitors to reserve a TIMED-ENTRY-TICKET
(including NBG Members- your ticket is free)
With limited parking spaces especially during high visitation days, your ticket
reserves your parking space and ARRIVAL time. Stay and enjoy the Garden.
By reserving your ticket, you will have a much better experience and so will others.
THANK YOU as we BUILD & PLANT the future!
