ACCESS CONTROL INTO THE GARDEN ROUTE BOTANICAL GARDEN - ENTRANCE FEES FROM 2 NOVEMBER 2015

Most people are under the impression that the Garden Route Botanical Garden is a Public Park. The Botanical Garden is managed by a Trust, the Garden Route Botanical Garden Trust (GRBGT) which, with limited resources, manages the garden to keep it up to National Botanical Garden standards. We are dependent on donations from generous benefactors & need this money for up keep, maintenance & wages.

Due to ongoing vandalism & theft by unknown persons who enter the gardens freely without paying a cent, the GRBGT has decided that, from Monday 2 November 2015, we will be charging gate fees. These fees will, hopefully, deter the majority of undesirable visitors and make a visit to the Gardens far more pleasurable for the majority of law abiding visitors.

There will be 2 security persons at each of our 2 gates. Visitors will have to sign in & the entry fee will be R10 per person. Paid up Members of the GRBGT will be entering free of charge.

If you have not yet signed up to be a member of the Trust now is the time. Contact Kristen Hoek at our office from 8am to 5pm Monday to Thursday & Fridays from 8am to 2:30 pm.

We have put a lot of thought & effort into this & believe we have reached the best solution for all. There will be teething problems at first, but we will sort these out with time.

If you have not yet visited our Gardens, come & have a look at the most beautiful garden in the Garden Route.
