Garden Etiquette

When visiting the Fruit & Spice Park, there are simple rules of etiquette that guests should follow:

  • Supervise children closely, especially near the tropical pool and fountains.
  • Picnic tables are available in the Garden; but no grills or large coolers, please.
  • Public restrooms are located near the main entrance.
  • No roller blades, skates or skateboards are permitted in the Gardens.
  • In the event of threatening weather, staff will direct you to shelter.
  • Trash cans and recycle bins are located throughout the Garden. Please recycle when possible.
  • Carving trees is not permitted because it causes harm to the trees, but they can be hugged.
  • No pets allowed except service animals.
  • Please do not pick from the trees, only try what has fallen from the trees as long as you know what it is.
  • Fruit may not be taken out of the park. We reserve the right to inspect all bags.
  • Guests must have t-shirt and shoes on during their visit.

Thank you for respecting our rules of garden etiquette.
