Parking and Directions

Program Location

The entire Garden Day program will take place in the Plant & Soil Sciences building. On-site check-in, as well as the keynote presentations, will take place in the new addition (North end) of the Plant and Soil Sciences building. Check-in will begin at 8:00am and our program will begin promptly at 8:40am.


Our Garden's parking lot (Lot 54) will be under construction and unavailable for parking on Garden Day.  But, free parking will be available in the Plant Biology (lot 46) and Food Safety and Toxicology (lot 53) parking lots, adjacent to the Gardens. See this map for their locations.

Directions and Construction

Please note that Bogue Street is permanently closed between Shaw Lane and Wilson Road. We recommend using the Trowbridge Road exit and coming in from the South end of campus. This will avoid the closure.

Click here for directions to the Trowbridge Road exit. Once you get off the exit, continue straight on Trowbridge Road to go on to campus.

** From this point to the Plant Biology lot (lot 46; most parking space): Follow Trowbridge Road around the bend (which then becomes Red Cedar Road) and then make a right at Wilson Rd. Continue on Wilson Road until just after Farm Lane.  The parking lot is the second driveway on your right after Farm Lane.

** From this point to the Food Safety and Toxicology lot (lot 53): On Trowbridge, take the first right and at the stop light, go straight directly into lot 53.
