If you are planning to visit Chanticleer during a peak visitation time, consider taking a hired car (Taxi, Lyft, or Uber), riding a bike, or walking to ensure that you are able to access the garden without having to park your car. Our peak visitation times are Friday evenings in the summer from 5:00pm 8:00pm and weekends between 11:00am 3:00pm, although these are subject to good or bad weather.

Reserved handicapped parking is available near the entrance. Guests may drop off passengers at the entrance using the traffic circle as you enter the parking area.

Wheelchair Access

Chanticleer is wheelchair accessible. The topography through parts of the garden is steep so please discuss with our Receptionist the best way to proceed on the path before you begin your tour. We recommend that you park in a designated spot near the entrance so that the garden is easily accessible for the wheelchair. Wheelchairs are not available for rent at the garden.
