Visiting the garden: COVID-19 update

June 26, 2020 - University of Victoria

We are excited to welcome visitors back to Finnerty Gardens. We are re-opening with new guidelines in place to enable everyone to safely enjoy the garden. 

  • Enter the gardens through the main gate next to the Multifaith Centre off parking lot 6. The other gates remain closed in accordance with health and safety guidelines. 
  • We encourage you to park at a parking space away from other vehicles. If you are not able to maintain a 2-metre distance from others when exiting your vehicle, please wait inside until it is clear to get out.
  • Gatherings are not permitted in the gardens.
  • Please maintain a distance of 2-metres from others at all times.
  • Keep to the right on all pathways and provide space for others to pass.
  • We ask that children be closely supervised and remain close to caretakers at all times, and that all dogs remain on a leash.
  • Do not enter the garden if you are sick or if you have been in contact with someone who is sick. 
  • Limit your stay to one hour.

Following these protocols will ensure we are able to remain open and provide a safe place for everyone to visit during this challenging time.

The Multifaith Centre will remain closed to the public, including the use of washrooms until further notice.
