Information icon One adult, senior, or youth can supervise and accompany up to five children 0 – 4 years of age. For example, at least two adults, seniors, or youth must accompany a group of six to ten children in the 0 - 4 age category. This ratio is not applicable for daycares and school groups that have booked through our education department.
The minimum age to visit the garden without an adult or guardian is 13 years of age (a youth). A 13 year old may visit with younger children and without an adult or guardian present (for example: younger sibling or babysitter).
