Beginning Monday, Feb. 27, parking fees will change to: $20.00 per personal/standard vehicle, $60 per large vehicle and $125 per bus and oversized vehicles.
The Board of Directors for The North Carolina Arboretum reviews gate prices on a biennial basis. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that review has not occurred in four years. Given the valuable additions made to programming and events on property, and the continued efforts to offer reduced-price programs, as well as inflationary pressures so many businesses are experiencing with labor and materials, the Board of Directors felt that it was time to increase the gate fee paid by one-time visitors.
Membership rates for recurring visitors remain unchanged.
We are pleased to continue to offer discount options for visitors:
- AAA Members receive $1 off personal vehicle parking fees (valid cards must be presented at the gate).
- AHS Reciprocal Garden Members receive free parking for personal vehicles (valid cards must be presented at the gate).
- Check out a Buncombe County Library ZOOM Pass, Henderson County Library ZOOM Pass or Polk County Library ZOOM Pass to receive free parking to the Arboretum (reservations required).
- Active/retired veterans receive free parking on Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day.
- First Tuesday of every month, the Arboretum offers a 50% discount on personal vehicle parking.
Thank you for visiting the North Carolina Arboretum!
