Getting to the Arb

To get to the Arb: we suggest public transportation, cab service, or having a driver drop you off as parking can be a challenge. Some permit-only lots open up to general parking AFTER 5pm, such as lot M-28 by Mary Markley hall. Parking structures, such as P2, at the hospital are also an option. There are a few parking meters along Washington Heights and Observatory. The meters are limited to 2 hours and are enforced until 6 pm. Please refer to our website for a parking map and potential options: https://mbgna.umich.edu/visit/parking-and-conservatory-admission-at-matthaei/  Please e-mail forda@umich.edu if you have additional questions.

See you there!   Matthaei Botanical Gardens & Nichols Arboretum
