Windmill Island Gardens Extends 2020 Season

Windmill Island Gardens was scheduled to close for the regular season on October 4. However, the park will remain open after October 4, on weekends only, through October 25.

While staff will begin tulip planting and other winter preparations, guests can continue to enjoy a virtual windmill tour, Dutch street organ, gift shop, acres of gardens and much more.

Like tourist attractions worldwide, 2020 has been an unusual year at Windmill Island Gardens. After a delayed opening in mid-June, the Island welcomed a steady stream of visitors enjoying Dutch attractions and beautiful gardens. In order to continue providing a pleasant socially distanced experience, attractions will remain open further into the fall than in years past. Reduced admission remains $5 for guests 9 and older with younger children admitted free. Some features including interior windmill tours and carousel rides will remain closed.
