Garden regulations

Botanic Gardens are different from public parks in that they’re living museums, filled with valuable living collections.

Botanic Gardens are also internationally-regarded as places for visitors to seek peace beauty and tranquillity, so activities that impede this (such as the use of drones) are also discouraged. You must not:

  • Bring dogs or other pets into the garden
  • Throw away the trash
  • Picnics are prohibited into the garden
  • Prune, cut, damage plants
  • Troubling the tranquility of the animals: touching them, throwing projectiles at them, giving them food foreign to the garden
  • Cross animal fences
  • Bathing in waterfalls and pools
  • To be shirtless and in a swimsuit
  • Fly drones in or above the garden
  • Ride bikes / bicycles, scooters, skateboards or rollerblades
  • Bring alcohol into the garden
  • Play ball or throwing games


Thank you for contributing to the safety of our community.
