About Dog Walking Hours
Bring Your Four-Legged Friends for a Walk in the Garden! Grab your leash and your fur babies (fur babies=dogs) and head to the Garden! During the garden’s Special Dog-Walking Hours, you’re invited to bring your four-legged friends to the Garden for a stroll through out 87 acres. While there are a few areas off limits to the dogs (including the Bohannon Rose Garden and the Koi Pond), the dogs are able to enjoy the majority of our beautiful oasis while remaining on leash.
Remember, dogs will only be admitted to South Coast Botanic Garden on designated days and times, with advanced reservations. Dogs are not permitted in the Garden at any other times outside of designated dog walking hours.
Dogs are $5 each. Regular admission fees apply to their human companions.
