Your Guide to Our Gardens


Your Guide to America's Garden Capital

The America’s Garden Capital Passport is an exclusive guide to exploring the region’s public gardens. Use the Passport to log garden visits to all 30+ gardens located here in America’s Garden Capital! Organized by geographic region, the Passport provides need-to-know information and must-visit experiences at each garden. Treasure your garden memories by collecting stamps, stickers, code words, and staff signatures, and draw your own pictures at each of the gardens.

How to Get a Passport

At Our Gardens, While Supplies Last

America’s Garden Capital Passports are available at our individual gardens, while supplies last. Find a garden near you here. Not all gardens are open year-round; please check individual gardens websites for hours of operation.

Download the Passport Map & Checklist

If the garden you visit doesn’t have a copy of the Passport available, a print-at-home PDF of the Passport map and checklist is available for download below.

Passports are ordered and distributed to Member Gardens on an annual basis. They are only available by attending one of our member gardens, while supplies last. We are not able to mail Passports directly or offer for purchase. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Get Stamped

Track your visits by getting stamped at each garden or self-stamp.

Just like a real Passport, track your travels by adding stamps and signatures to the back of your book! Most gardens in America’s Garden Capital have stamps available on-site, but others require self-stamping using the images available for print/download here.* See each garden’s listing in the Passport for specific stamping instructions. 

Share Your Passport Journey

We love seeing fan photos—snap a picture of yourself with your Passport at any of the 30+ gardens and use the hashtag #americasgardencapital for a chance to have your garden visit featured on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
