I'm not sure it's worth trying to use a tripod in the Botanic Garden. A lot of the paths are pretty narrow - and if it gets crowded there are safety issues uses a tripod there. I've never wanted to use a tripod there - too worried about what would happen when someone either runs into it and knocks my camera over - or trips over it and falls
That said - if you would like to bring your tripod and try to get a permit for the group - that's fine with me.

What if we requested a tripod permit for the group and then took turns using it? I have a ball head with a popular quick release (have a couple) plates that we could pass around.
