Additional parking can be found on Laurel Hill Road. Please see this map for directions.

Visiting by Bus

The Garden is served by Chapel Hill Transit’s S and HU bus routes. The S route has a stop on Fordham Blvd at Old Mason Farm Rd. The HU route takes riders between UNC Hospitals and the Hwy 54 Park & Ride Lot, with several stops between. Visitors to the Garden disembark and board at the Ronald McDonald House stop, which is on Old Mason Farm Road almost directly across the street from the Garden’s parking lot entrance. Please see the schedule & route map.

Visiting by Bicycle or on Foot

Access to the Garden is now easier and safer as a result of recent sidewalk construction and intersection improvements at Fordham Blvd., including pedestrian-activated traffic signals and marked crosswalks at all four sides of the Old Mason Farm Rd/Fordham Blvd intersection, and at two sides (southern and western) of the Manning Dr/Fordham Blvd intersection. Bikes are also able to activate signals on the side streets. As always, please use caution when crossing these very busy intersections. AND if you are coming from the UNC Campus, try walking the beautiful Campus to Garden Trail through the Coker Pinetum.
