    The minimum age to visit the garden or conservatory without an adult / guardian is 13 years of age (a youth)


    A 13 year old may visit with younger children and without an adult or guardian present. For example, they could bring their younger siblings or kids they are babysitting with them.

    One adult, senior or youth can supervise and accompany up to 5 children 0-4 years of age at the garden and conservatory

    If a group wanted to bring in 6 kids that were all between 0-4 years old then then they would need at least two adult, senior or youth guardians to accompany them

    This ratio would not apply to daycares or school groups that register or book through our education department
