Duke Gardens COVID-19 Notice

Duke Gardens is closed until further notice. The Gardens will not reopen in June and we do not yet have a reopening date.

This decision is in keeping with Duke University’s policies aiming to minimize health and safety risks to the Duke and Durham communities and beyond, and to encourage social distancing to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

This closure includes all indoor and outdoor areas. When we have a reopening date, we will post it here and in social media in advance of the date.

Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to welcoming visitors again in the future, and enjoying the beauty and tranquility of nature together. In the meantime, please see our resources page for information about free online classes and other ways to explore the natural world around us.

All information is subject to change on short notice. See more updates and advisories from Duke University at coronavirus.duke.edu.
