AMERICAN ROSE CENTER PHOTOGRAPHY POLICY

Thank you for your interest in photography at the Gardens of the American Rose Center. Observance of these rules will allow our gardens to remain open and available to photographers and the public for all to enjoy.

We expect all photographers, both amateurs and professionals, to obey rules of the garden found in the pages of our complimentary garden maps, and other rules as may be posted throughout the gardens or as listed below. Please be courteous and make every effort not to disturb other guests. Please do not damage any plants or property. Many of our plants are rare specimens and cannot be replaced. Please feel free to post photographs to our national website: www.rose.org; Facebook: www.facebook.com/AmericanRoseCenter

Specific garden locations may not be reserved in advance. Our garden is open to the public and photography may not interfere with our normal operations. Operating hours are posted at the front entrance. Circumstances beyond our control may require the American Rose Center to close without prior notice to visitors; please check the website and social media sites for possible up-to-date closures.

Absolutely no alcohol or firearms are allowed on the premises at any time. Pets are limited to two household animals and must be on leash at all times, having all proper vaccinations and licenses. No livestock or exotic animals are allowed. No littering or cake “smashing” or other disruptive activities are allowed. No standing or posing within the boundary of gardens. Signs and markers may not be moved. Absolutely no alteration of property is allowed. All speed limits must be observed and parking is in designated areas only. Absolutely no vehicles are allowed in the garden areas. Children must be supervised at all times. Absolutely no wading in water features. Absolutely no climbing on trees or structures is allowed. All liability for injuries and/or damages is assumed by the photographer.

Violation of any of these policies will result in ejection from the property and prohibition from future entry, as well as payment for damages by photographer.

PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHERS

The gardens are checked each day. If we find any damage you will be contacted and expected to pay damages.

Absolutely no professional photography is allowed within the Sawyer Meditation & Prayer Garden at any time. This area is set aside as a place of quiet solitude and personal reflection.

REMINDER: Photography guidelines, as outlined above, apply to both professional and amateur photographers.

Thank you, again, for helping us to keep the American Rose Center beautiful and open for everyone.
