Montalvo Arts Center is committed to making its exhibitions, programs, and services accessible to the public, and is actively working to make its grounds and facilities user-friendly. However, due to the historic nature of much of the gardens, some areas may present challenges to those in wheelchairs, or who have difficulty walking or climbing.
Entrance / Paths
Montalvo's grounds are accessible by paved pathways throughout the gardens. Many garden areas can be reached in a variety of ways, including stair-free options. However, as our property is built on a hill, some areas are considerably steep. Certain paths may be narrow or uneven, and select areas are inaccessible by wheelchair.
ADA accessible restrooms are available next to the Lilian Fontaine Garden Theatre. Please ask an exhibition guide or Montalvo staff member for directions if you need them.
Montalvo Arts Center provides manually operated wheelchairs as a courtesy to our guests. They are available on a first come, first served basis and can be checked out from the Welcome Station at the foot of the Great Lawn.
