Ladew Topiary Gardens

Named One of the Top 5 Gardens
in North America

It is Ladew Gardens’ policy to make our campus accessible to everyone,
which includes making every effort to meet the needs of guests with mobility limitations. We want Ladew Gardens to be a fully enjoyable experience for all of our guests. The garden terrain varies from compacted-gravel walkways, to grass paved paths, to mulched trails through wooded areas. Seated areas are provided throughout the gardens.

Accessible Cart Tours 

Ladew Topiary Gardens offers one-hour tours on our golf cart, led by trained volunteer Gardens docents, weather and ground conditions permitting. The cart can accommodate up to three passengers. These tours are a wonderful opportunity for those who may not otherwise be able to experience the full spectrum of our gardens. Tours are offered between 10 am and 3 pm from April 1 through October 31. Accessible Cart Tour is available, at no charge, once the Garden Admission has been paid in the Visitor Center. PLEASE NOTE: Reservations are required at least one week prior to your visit for a free Accessible Cart Tour. Ladew Gardens reserves the right to cancel the cart tour if the weather is inclement and/or the ground conditions are not ideal.
