Yesterday, the Department of Parks said that the Botanical Gardens and the Arboretum are closed to the general public, which they anticipate will remain in effect for 3 months.

A spokesperson said, “The Botanical Gardens, as well as the Arboretum, sustained extensive tree and shrub damage as a result of Tropical Storm Fay and Hurricane Gonzalo. Large specimen and mature trees have fallen and there are over hanging branches and debris still present throughout the grounds at both parks.

“Runners, walkers, dog handlers, and other users and visitors should avoid entering the grounds at the Botanical Gardens and the Arboretum due to the danger posed by the fallen trees and debris.

“The Gardens, as well as the Arboretum, are anticipated to be closed for 3 months and the Department of Parks is asking the public’s cooperation with the request to avoid entering both parks.

“The Botanical Gardens and Arboretum maintenance staff are working diligently to ensure that both parks can be safely re-opened to the public and our visitors.
