Children and Family Programs
COVID-19 Update: Duke Gardens has begun a phased reopening, with phase 1 limited to Duke students, faculty & staff with a Duke ID, timed ticket and symptom monitoring. We do not have a date for phase 2 at this time. Read more here.
Please see our latest at-home learning activities, classes and links here.
This decision is in keeping with Duke University’s policies aiming to minimize health and safety risks to the Duke community 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 joining you for Duke Gardens on site education and discovery programs again in the future.
