Jim Gibbs wants every Gibbs Gardens’ visitor to enjoy a wonderful experience. Gibbs Gardens has handicapped parking near the garden entrance. The Valley Gardens are wheelchair accessible. The Welcome Center (ticketing, restrooms and The Seasons gift store) and the Arbor Café are also wheelchair accessible.
The paths in our Valley Gardens are easy to traverse; they are quite level and wide. There are many benches—126 in the Valley Gardens alone—to provide a comfortable place to sit and rest or just time to relax and take in the beauty of the gardens.
The paths are covered with a ground granite composition that stays firm in dry weather. However, it may soften following rain. As such, visitors who must traverse the Gardens either by wheelchair or electric scooter should call the Gardens on the day of their visit to see if our Pathway Restriction, which prohibits the use of wheelchairs or electric scooters on our pathways, is in place.
On days when our Pathway Restrictions are in effect, we will post this icon and
and information related to the restriction under “Weather Alert” on the home page
of our website as well as a “Weather Alert” notification on our Facebook page.
The Manor House Gardens are not wheelchair or electric scooter accessible due to its terrain. The Gardens does not rent wheelchairs.
