The parking lot and Garden Center, including the Library at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, are barrier-free facilities as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). During operating hours of the Garden Center, complimentary wheelchairs are available to check out at the Receptionist's desk on a first-come, first-served basis.

While it is a major goal of our upcoming master plan update to improve accessibility throughout The Gardens, much of the site is currently not barrier-free and assistance will be necessary. Nevertheless, many paths and garden areas have hard surfaces throughout and offer numerous visiting opportunities.
