Where do you park?
The lower parking lot will be open on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. as volunteers are available to host. The lower parking lot is also generally open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The lower parking lot will also be open for scheduled events.
At other times access is limited to those who can hike down the road into the Botanic Garden from the upper parking lot beside Tyrone Road. The upper and lower parking lots are about 500 yards apart, and you can access the Garden by walking down the main road or our new Hillside Trail.
Admission to the Garden is free, but donations are welcome.
The West Virginia Botanic Garden at Tibbs Run Preserve is a non-profit organization. Help us continue to provide programs and free access to the community.
Donations can be made on-site at the kiosk near the lower parking lot, or in the upstairs of the Education & Event Center if it is open. Donations can also be made online.
