The Gardens at Ball Are Open!
The Gardens at Ball will be officially open Tuesdays through Fridays July 28-August 14 to greenhouse, nursery and landscape professionals.
This is your chance to see "What's New!" for garden centers and landscape.
We have implemented a visitor plan based on Restore Illinois and CDC guidelines to keep you and our staff safe. Due to COVID-19 and ongoing campus construction we will not be allowing additional facility tours and the general offices and building is closed to the public. But no worries: Ball has recently completed a new indoor restroom for trial visitors as well as a water bottle refilling station for guests in the gardens.
Once you arrive on-site, you'll be provided a map with instructions for a self-guided tour. Registration for your visit are open in two time periods: 8am-10am and 10am-Noon. Click here to reserve your date and time.
Our grounds team have really outdone themselves this year! Below are a few sneak peeks of some excellent landscape design, new intros, as well as a brief video intro on the importance of seeing field trials for inspiration and information.
We are thrilled to be able to share our gardens with you!
