🚌 Please note: If the Garden’s parking lot is full, there is overflow parking uphill at the Lawrence Hall of Science (LHS) Lot. Visitors to the Botanical Garden can pay for parking in this lot and then ride the Hill Shuttle to the Garden for free. Shuttle runs Monday-Friday every 30 minutes, Saturday-Sunday and holidays every 15-20 minutes. Centennial Drive will have occasional traffic delays due to a road project through 2024.
