The USU Botanical Center is open and accessible to the public from dawn until dusk, 365 days a year.

It's FREE! The gardens and grounds are designed for education and demonstration and there is no fee.  We do accept donations.

Yes, leashed pets are welcome. Pet owners are responsible for picking up after their pets.

Yes, fishing licenses are required for all anglers 12 years of age or older. The ponds are stocked and regulated by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR).

Please check the laws and regulations on the UDWR website.

Yes, non-motorized watercrafts are allowed. There is a canoe/kayak access dock at Barton's Pond near our 9/11 memorial. See our map for details.

The pond water source is stormwater which can carry contaminants. We do not recommend swimming for public health reasons.

Parking locations are labeled on our map. Visitors are encouraged to park in our paved lot on the northeast end of the property in front of the Kaysville Education Center or in the gravel lot on the south end of our property.

Parking near the ponds is limited and not allowed beyond the locked gate on 676 South. The gate may be open during our events but only those attending should park beyond the gate. Parking along 50 West is prohibited.

Both amateur and professional photography are allowed. There are no fees.

We do not rent our venues or garden spaces for private events. You can reach out to the Davis County Extension office for public and/or community partnered events.

The Kaysville Education Center is our main building and serves multiple roles. It is a Utah State University statewide campus for those earning a degree and also houses our offices and the offices of the USU Extension faculty and staff. The Utah House and Wetland Discovery Point are used for 4-H programs, clubs, classes, and events.

$35/year for an individual or $50/year for a family.

Members are invited to attend special members-only classes and receive discounts on our public events. They also receive a monthly gardening newsletter and discounts from our nursery partners.

We do not have projects for those needing to complete court-ordered community service. We do offer many volunteer opportunities though. Visit our volunteer page for details.
