We have decided to cancel the 16th Annual Waterlily Celebration and Annual Photo Contest in order to prevent a large crowd of visitors during this event.

While this event is cancelled, you can still enjoy one of the state’s largest collection of waterlilies comprised of over 80 varieties and over 300 potted and 100 free-range plants, including night and day blooming varieties that are on display throughout the ponds and waterways of McKee. Waterlilies thrive in the warm summer heat and are at there most beautiful and fragrant state in the summer months.

The main Garden is open Tuesday-Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday Noon – 5 pm. (The Garden is closed on Mondays and major holidays). Admission: $15 Adults, $13 Seniors (65+)/Youth (13-17), $10 Children (2-12). McKee members and children under 2 free. (The Children’s Garden, Cafe, Hall of Giants, and Gift Shop remain closed until further notice).

We look forward to seeing you in the Garden.
