The Garden uses a Lightning Prediction System to alert guests when lightning is near. An alarm will sound one 15-second blast of the horn, signaling that lightning is near.

In the event of lightning, all guests should seek shelter immediately. Safe indoor waiting places include Fogg Café, Kapnick Hall and the Berger Shop in the Garden. When lightning is clear, the alarm will sound three 5-second blasts of the horn.

Naples Botanical Garden is a certified Autism-Friendly venue through the Center For Autism & Related Disabilities (CARD) at the University of South Florida.

As we continue to provide vital Member and community programming, our calendar no longer supports the ability to host private events, including weddings. We remain steadfast in our loyalty to our community partners and welcome conversations surrounding partnership-related events. To submit a request, please contact Development at development@naplesgarden.org

Dogs in the Garden

Want to experience the Garden with your pup? Dog walking days are Sundays and Tuesdays from 9 – 11am. (We ask that all dogs exit the Garden by noon.) If this is your dog’s first visit, you will need to fill out a dog form prior to arrival. One dog per adult. No retractable leashes permitted.
