About Bartram’s Garden

“Bartram’s Garden welcomes everyone to explore, connect to nature, participate in programs, celebrate personal journeys, relax, reflect, and experience something new. Our grounds are free and open to the public year-round, dawn to dusk, except on City-observed holidays. Guided tours are available of the Historic House and Garden on the hour between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. every Thursday through Sunday. These tours are free to STAMP participants.

Bartram’s also offers free paddling to the public on Saturdays between 11AM and 3PM. All minors (under the age of 18) must have a waiver signed by a parent or supervising adult. Boaters aged 12 to 17 can operate a rowboat or kayak by themselves, however a parent or supervising adult must be present on the water with them. Youth 11 and under must be accompanied by a parent or supervising adult in a tandem kayak or a rowboat. Free fishing is available every Fourth Wednesday at the Bartram’s Garden Community Boathouse from 6PM to 8PM. We provide free rods, tackle, bait and basic instruction. First come, first served – supplies are limited. No fishing license or experience necessary, great for beginner anglers.
