  • Entrance:  Main Entrance is the accessible entrance.  External doors are not automated and require less then 8lb of pressure to open.  Doors are commonly propped open and staff is available for assistance.
  • Route:  There is a 36" + wide accessible route through the floral displays and a turnaround at each end of the walk through the exhibit, however there is limited passing space on the walk.   Given that the WW Seymour Botanical Conservatory displays live plant life, some incidental greenery may extend into the accessible route.
