Botanic Gardens Reopening on June 29, 2020- 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

We welcome you back to the UCR Botanic Gardens where your safety is our highest priority. Our success at reopening, remaining open, and expanding open days and hours depends on your adherence to CDC, California Department of Public Health, and UCR guidelines designed to ensure your health and safety.


Phase 2 Reopening Schedule


Due to limited staffing at this time, our open days and hours will be restricted to the following:


Monday – Friday, 9:00 am – 12:00 noon


Phase 2 Reopening Requirements


If you are ill or feel unwell please do not visit until you have fully recovered. Masks covering both nose and mouth must be worn by each person over the age of 2. Group size is limited to 10 or less. Physical distancing of 6 feet from all other persons or groups is required. To ensure that our current level of staffing can manage physical distancing, admission may be limited. Pathways and trails have been widened to allow safe passage; please practice physical distancing when approaching others on the pathway or trail or in small garden areas. Restrooms at the entrance are open and will be disinfected regularly; upper restrooms will remain closed. Drinking fountains are closed but touchless bottle hydration stations will be open. To ensure that the entrance is a no-touch zone maps and brochures will be removed temporarily. Please visit our website at to print a map of the Gardens.


If you are not comfortable wearing a mask or adhering to these requirements, for the safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors you will not be permitted to enter.


Thank you; we hope to see you from a safe distance at the Gardens!
