Waterfront Botanical Gardens is now an official member of the American Horticulture Society’s Reciprocal Garden Network! As a participating garden, our members now have free admission to more than 380 gardens throughout the U.S. When visiting a Reciprocal Garden, WBG members must provide proof of an active membership in order to gain free access. To do this, you will need to provide a copy of the acknowledgement letter you received from WBG when you purchased or renewed your membership.

*This benefit is available to all WBG members who have a current and active membership.
