Sunnylands Center & Gardens is Open Art Garden for Peaceful Walks and Exploration of Desert Plants
On Wednesday, September 16th, Sunnylands Center & Gardens is opening its 9-acre art garden to the public as a venue for peaceful walks and the exploration of desert plants.
The gardens and their 1.5 miles of walking trails will be available free of charge from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.
The public is invited to stroll the walking paths, relax on shaded benches, or use their cell phones to take any of five self-guided audio tours, found on the Sunnylands website. This season, inspirational signs will be placed throughout the gardens to help visitors explore their surroundings and consider the visual and audio relationships that they encounter there.
Sunnylands is requiring guests to wear face masks that cover the nose and mouth and to maintain a 6-foot distance from people not in their party while in the gardens. Sunnylands will monitor attendance to make sure the gardens do not become overcrowded. Outdoor hand-sanitizing stations will be available, as well as very limited access to the Center for use of the restrooms
Guests are encouraged to bring drinking water on their visit, to wear sun block, and to dress for warm weather.
At this time, the Sunnylands’ gift shop or café are closed. However, some select gift shop items, including Sunnylands Olive Oil, will soon be available for purchase online at sunnylandsshop.org. Purchases may be shipped or picked up outside the Center during operating hours.
The public will not have access to Sunnylands’ interior spaces, including the Center and the historic Annenberg home, until further notice. Tours of the estate and public programming, such as Yoga and Tai Chi on the Great Lawn, are currently on hold.
