We will meet at 9 am at the Circle of Flags which is just up the hill from the museum entrance.

The Carter Center Presidential grounds are open to the public from 6 am to 9 pm April - October so feel free to come earlier if you'd like.

The Gardens at the Carter Presidential Center are located in a wooded, 35-acre park and include formal gardens, a cherry orchard, and waterfalls tucked between two small lakes. Visitors can stroll through the Rose Garden, which is home to 40 varieties — including the coral Rosalynn Carter rose — or view the serene Japanese garden, designed by Master Gardener Kinsaku Nakane.

Cost: The grounds are free to the public and parking is also free. Follow the signs on Freedom Parkway to the Carter Center museum and you'll see plenty of parking there.

If you choose to visit the museum, the cost is $8 for adults and $6 for seniors.

You may take photos in the museum but there is no flash nor tripods allowed inside.

There is a public restroom inside the museum building that can be accessed without having to pay the entrance fee.

Lunch: There is a cafe in the museum building that opens at 11:30 am and can be accessed without having to pay the museum fee. The cafe has outdoor seating by a pond. There are also picnic tables on the grounds if you'd like to pack a lunch.

See you there!
