Pokemon at the Garden

We're excited to see the Pokémon population proliferating rapidly throughout Garden grounds, and we welcome Pokémon Go players to catch 'em all during regular operating hours!

  • There are more than 40 PokéStops located at the Garden, including one for almost every sculpture on our grounds. Take in these diverse works of art while on the hunt!
  • PokéGyms are located in our Swift Family Garden, Climatron conservatory, and Japanese Garden. 
  • Wifi is available in select areas on Garden grounds. Select "MBGPUBLIC" from available networks and accept the usage policy to connect. 

  • While on the hunt, please be aware of your surroundings and remain on paths or public grounds. Please do not enter planting beds or restricted areas. 
  • Please respect the experience of other visitors.
