After careful consideration, Descanso Gardens has made the decision to reopen to the public this Saturday, May 16.

The public garden will put a variety of new social distancing rules in place including:
• limiting the number of tickets they are selling to 30% of capacity
• selling timed tickets to limit the number of people at the entry at any given time
• reconfiguring the entry to make social distancing easier
• closing all indoor spaces, including the Sturt Haaga Gallery and Boddy House
• adding hand sanitizing stations in the courtyard
