What happens if the parking lot is closed when we arrive? The Arboretum can be busy on weekends during the Spring Blooms Festival ( March 2nd – April 7th, 2013) and the parking lot can become full very quickly. Arriving early is a good option. However if the parking lot is closed when you arrive, you will be directed to off-site parking and a shuttle bus will bring you to the Arboretum.
