Pierce College is approximately half a mile north of the 101 Ventura Freeway.  Exit at Winnetka, go north and turn left into the Calvert Street entrance.  Turn right at the tennis courts, then left into Parking Lot #1. 

On weekdays when classes are in session, you will need to stop at the Sheriff's office to obtain a "Day Pass" parking permit.  Make sure you display the "Day Pass" clearly on your windshield.  Parking on campus is very limited during the first two weeks of the semester, but Friday afternoons are a good time.  If you will be visiting the garden for just a short time, you may park in the metered parking area of Parking Lot #1 without obtaining a "Day Pass".  25 cents per 20 minutes.

On weekends and holidays, you may park for free and do not require a "Day Pass".

There is no admission charge to the garden.

Groups:  Please contact the Sheriff's Department for parking instructions.
