The grounds of the Garden itself are open to the public! However, please note that the Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion building (and its restrooms) will be closed to the public until further notice. We ask that guests practice safe social distancing, especially around our staff members.
The Hahn Horticulture Garden encompasses nearly six acres of teaching and display gardens on the campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. Established in 1984 by Horticulture faculty, the garden serves undergraduate students and the local community as a learning resource for plant material, landscaping concepts, and environmental awareness.
Our garden features perennial borders, water gardens, shade gardens, a meadow garden, and the Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion (and plants, of course. Lots of plants.) Visit us in all seasons - to relax, enjoy, learn, and grow!
Support the Garden while you shop, visit Bloominbucks.com, select the Hahn Horticulture Garden from the list, and shop. They will donate 25% of your purchase to the Garden!
Our garden is open every day of the week from dawn 'till dusk, free of charge. Please note that the Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion (restrooms and water fountains) is only open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
To avoid tickets from VT Parking Services, please purchase a Visitor's Pass from the Parking Services. You may purchase your pass via the ParkMobile app or ParkMobile Website. The VT Zone number is 85101 for ParkMobile. You may also purchase a pass in person at the Parking Services Building located at 505 Beamer Way.
If you park in the Garden Visitor's Lot without a Visitor's Pass, you run the risk of being ticketed by Parking Services (and we are powerless to help you with it). This is not a Garden policy, rather a campus-wide policy.
No passes necessary! You may park in our Visitors Lot or anywhere else on campus (unless there are parking restrictions due to athletic events).
From the main entrance of Virginia Tech from Highway 460, enter on Southgate Drive. Travel straight through the first traffic circle, merge into the left lane and exit onto Duckpond Drive at the second traffic circle. While on Duckpond Drive, you will pass the baseball field on your right and the VA-MD College of Veterinary Medicine on your left. Continue up the hill to the four-way stop and turn right onto Washington Street. Take the next right onto Garden Lane, which runs between the greenhouse complex and the Garden; this brings you to the Visitor Parking area and the Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion.
