Please note: The Gardens at Yaddo will be closing for the season on October 15, 2022, 4pm. We will announce the 2023 opening sometime in the spring.

The roses begin to bloom in mid-June and and reach peak season from about the third week of June through July, and then peak again in mid- to late-August. The rock garden is in bloom from mid-June through mid-September.

Limited parking is available at the entrance to our Gardens. Please park only in the designated area, or your vehicle may be towed. Please note: Busses and coaches are not permitted.

All pets must be kept on a leash, and under leash control at all times. It is a city law that you clean up after your pets.

Prohibited: Loud noise including music from car stereos or personal devices; littering; fishing. Do not go off the marked paths or enter Private areas. Trespassers will be prosecuted.

If you are unable to visit at a time when there is a guided tour being offered, you may download this self-guided walking tour (PDF).

The grounds of Yaddo, including our Gardens, are a privately funded, nonprofit artist retreat established by the Trask family in 1893. Our Gardens are the only area on the grounds of Yaddo that are open to the public. We ask that you respect the privacy of our artists in residence, and not go beyond the Gardens during your visit. Thank you!
