Quad City Botanical Center Announces Pay What You Want Week August 7-13


The Quad City Botanical Center is allowing guests to pay what they want for admission to the gardens August 7-13. By giving guests the chance to name their price of admission, we hope to allow every community member a chance to experience all the summer gardens have to offer.

The public is welcome to visit Sunday 11AM-5PM and 10AM-5PM Monday through Saturday. Standard general admission is $9 for adults 16 and older, $6 for youth ages 2-15 and toddlers under age two receive free admission. Members always get in free.

Summer highlights at the Botanical Center include the adventurous water play area in the Children’s Garden, colorful perennial and wildflower prairie gardens that attract butterflies, a whimsical fairy wonderland called Pat’s Garden, reflection ponds, and an indoor Tropical Sun Garden with a waterfall.


The garden train railway exhibit is open on Sunday 12-4PM.


Ask in guest services at the entrance about scavenger hunt lists. Most guests enjoy a visit of one hour. If visiting the Children’s Garden, most guests spend one to two hours interacting with the water feature.
