At Kingwood Center Gardens, a new season brings with it changes designed to make the local landmark more accessible and enjoyable for visitors of all ages. Starting April 1, Kingwood is introducing an updated admission pricing structure along with additional free admission days and a series of engaging community events. These changes reflect Kingwood’s commitment to nurturing connections between nature and the community, ensuring that the beauty and tranquility of the gardens are accessible to everyone.

A New Dawn for Admission

Kingwood’s new admission structure is a thoughtful adjustment aimed at making visits more affordable for families and teens. Here’s a glance at the updated pricing:

  • Adults (19 years and over): $10
  • Children (7-18 years): $5, a significant reduction from the previous $8 for ages 13-18
  • Children (6 years & under): Free admission
  • Kingwood Members: Enjoy unlimited daily garden admission at no cost

This revised pricing is a gesture of Kingwood’s dedication to fostering a family-friendly environment where the wonders of nature can be explored and appreciated by visitors from all walks of life.

More Days to Enjoy Kingwood for Free

Kingwood is excited to announce an expansion of its free admission days, furthering its mission of accessibility. The cherished Free First Mondays offer will continue, alongside the Live on the Lawn summer concert series every Thursday evening in July, providing a perfect blend of music and nature. Additionally, Family Day will make a return on Sunday, August 4, promising a day filled with fun activities and free admission from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.

Not stopping there, Kingwood introduces new free admission days to celebrate special occasions, including Arbor Day (4/26), National Public Gardens Day (5/10), Grandparents Day (9/8), and Veterans Day (11/11). Seasonal celebrations will also see half-price admission days during the Summer Solstice (6/20), Autumnal Equinox (9/22), and Spring Equinox (beginning in 2025), inviting guests to witness the gardens’ stunning seasonal transformations.

Ensuring Accessibility for All

Kingwood’s efforts to be universally welcoming are further exemplified through its ongoing participation in the Museums for All initiative, offering $1 admission with an EBT card and ID. The garden also continues its collaboration with the Adventure Pass program at the Mansfield/Richland County Public Library, allowing local families to check out a free family pass to Kingwood.

This inclusive approach ensures that the gardens remain a haven for relaxation, education, and community gathering, regardless of economic barriers.

This announcement is just the beginning of what promises to be a blossoming season full of beauty, learning, and community engagement at Kingwood.

In embracing these changes, Kingwood Gardens not only enriches its offerings but also strengthens its bond with the community, ensuring that its gates remain open to all as a sanctuary of natural beauty and tranquility.
