In early January 2023, the Garden began construction on the Garden of Tomorrow – the largest expansion in the Garden’s history. Though the majority of the construction is taking place in the grassy area behind the parking lot and across from the Rose Garden, the parking lot is the main area affected. Our parking lot is transforming into a beautiful parking garden and a portion of the area is being used for construction lay down. WE HAVE LIMITED PARKING. Construction fencing will temporarily take up many parking spaces throughout the year and will limit the number of vehicles we can accommodate each day.
The entire Garden is open and available to explore – we want you to have a great experience. Again, it’s the limited parking spaces that have the most impact. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are requiring that NBG Members and guests reserve a TIMED-ENTRY-TICKET – (THIS IS YOUR ARRIVAL TIME). This will reserve your parking space and entry into the Garden, especially during high visitation days. By reserving a timed-entry-ticket, this will help us to alleviate long lines at the tollbooth. NBG Members – your ticket is always free! Thank you for being a part of our Garden Family.
Thank you to our members and guests for your continued support as we BUILD & PLANT the future. You are helping support us as a non-profit organization.
Need assistance with reserving a ticket, please call our Visitor Services Team at 757-441-5830 ext. 0

ABOUT THE GARDEN OF TOMORROW
The Garden of Tomorrow includes the Brock Parking Garden, Brock Entry Pavilion and the two-story 26,000 ft. Perry Conservatory featuring a second-story Skywalk funded by Kay and Al Abiouness. The Perry Conservatory will house and protect the most threatened plants around the world, allowing the Garden to expand conservation efforts. This is the largest project in the Garden’s 85-year history! Guests will no longer wait in long lines at the tollbooth, instead they will be immersed in nature the second they step out of their vehicles. Construction is expected to take two years to complete.
