Cranbrook House & Gardens is a historic facility preserved and maintained as closely as possible to its original design. As such, there are certain natural and artificial surface conditions, such as grass, wood chips, stones, stairs, steep slopes and uneven terrain which can make walking and use of a wheelchair difficult. Assistance for persons using wheelchairs or walkers is recommended.
Cranbrook Gardens is a private facility open to the public during the hours above. Please help us remain open and safe for everyone, and the grounds litter and critter free, by following our Estate Rules policies.
All dogs are required to be on a leash and cleaned up after while on campus. Dog owners will be asked to leave campus if they cannot produce a leash. The leash policy is a Bloomfield Hills ordinance. Only service animals are permitted inside Cranbrook House and the Sunken Garden.
