Today, Wave Hill is officially reopened! If you didn’t have a chance to scoop up tickets for opening week, new reservation links will be up on their website on Monday August 3rd for August 6th- 9th.
Here’s the scoop:
Safety first: reduced hours, fewer visitors, pre-reservations required
First and foremost, visitors are asked to have masks on when entering and exiting the garden and when using a restroom. Face coverings may be removed when on the grounds and social distancing is possible. To protect Wave Hill visitors and staff, the garden is reopening in phases, initially open Thursday through Sunday, noon to 5:30PM. The number of visitors will be limited each day and everyone will be required to reserve an admission ticket in advance. This ticket will be required to enter the grounds.
Pre-reservations open Mondays, starting July 27
Every Monday, starting July 27, visitors will have access to reserve admission tickets for the following Thursday through Sunday. The first week, that would be for July 30 through August 2. Wave Hill Members will have early access to weekly ticket reservations, starting Fridays.
Getting here and being prepared
The visitor parking lot will not be open and shuttle service is temporarily suspended due to social distancing requirements. Courtesy carts and wheelchairs are also temporarily unavailable. Again due to COVID-19, the buildings will be closed, but restrooms will be open on the lower level of Glyndor Gallery and at the Perkins Visitor Center. Visitors are welcome to bring water—no food, please. (Water fountains will be closed.)
Know before you go!
When visitors make their reservations online, a confirmation email will include a link to everything they will want to know before coming and what to expect for their visit.
