A note on our fall reopening

Monday, June 8, 2020

Dear Friends,

Sunnylands is now on its annual summer hiatus, a time that is traditionally spent preparing for the new fall season.

If all goes well, we will open the gates to the Center & Gardens in mid-September with a number of changes in place to safeguard the health of employees and guests against the coronavirus pandemic.

Some of these measures will be familiar to you: social distancing, face coverings, limited attendance, frequent cleanings, and more.  We will also offer more programming online, and the way we furnish our space, schedule visits, and arrange next season’s exhibition will be different.

Tours of the historic estate are being reconfigured with the safety of guests and employees in mind.  Information on when estate tours will resume and their new operating procedures will be made available later this summer.

Surely, the new season will be one of experimentation. We will welcome your feedback as we change our procedures, see what works, and recognize what needs improvement.  Please keep an eye on our website for updates.

Through it all, however, we will strive to keep one thing the same: our promise to provide a free public space that combines art and nature in a uniquely satisfying and restorative way.

Janice Lyle,
Director, Sunnylands Center & Gardens
