Botanical Gardens

 
Directions:I-64 exit 279 toward the airport.
At Azalea Garden Road, go left. Turn right into Norfolk Botanical Gardens.
 
If you come early, you can get a parking space at the Duck Pond parking area, otherwise, you will park by the visitor center and walk down the hill or use the tram.  This is a smallish area, but mostly flat with paved areas.  There are outbuilding bathrooms (permanent) and a soda machine.  There are not traditionally any food vendors at this regatta but there is a cafe at the Gardens.  If you are a member of the gardens you may use all of your normal privileges – including parking.  All visitors may tour the gardens while they are at the regatta.

Do not attempt to park on the road leading into the gardens.  They may tow your car.  The dock and regatta site is immediately to the left of the gate, but you won’t be allowed to park there.
 
COST: $15 per non-rower for entry.
