Car count may not exceed the number on reservation or subject to turn away. Neighborhood parking is strictly prohibited.3. Garden AccessibilityLotusland is committed to creating a Garden that is accessible to all visitors. Some of our paths are not ADA-compliant, as we are a historic estate.

A limited number of wheelchairs are available for loan at our Visitor Center at no charge. You may request to borrow a wheelchair at time of booking. 4.

Vehicles with pets will be subject to turning away without a refund or rescheduling. 5. Protecting our cherished collectionWe ask all visitors to kindly respect our collection by staying on designated paths at all times. Collecting or touching any plant material is strictly prohibited. Any removal of plant material or harm to the collection will result in your visit being terminated and you will be asked to leave the property.
