The Connie Hansen Garden Conservancy
Open from Dawn to Dusk Daily
Free of Charge
Your donations keep the garden alive!
We welcome you to stroll through the garden any time each day from dawn to dusk. There are many enchanting pathways, some wheelchair accessible.
The Garden House is open every day of the week from 10am - 2pm.
At present, access to all grassy areas and many of our pathways is limited per Oregon Dept. of Agriculture regulations due to a pathogen that has targeted the Rhododendron and Azalea plantings. The pathogen is spread through contact with wet foliage when spores are present. Please observe all signage indicating no access and keep any pets in your vehicle or leashed under strict control on permitted pathways only
Admission is free but we welcome the appreciative support of visitors through donations, plant purchases and gift shopping.
