Gardens on Spring Creek 2019 Closure Schedule

This closure will ensure safety and security of our site, staff, and project team.
The Gardens on Spring Creek Masthead

Beginning January 2, our Visitor’s Center, Greenhouse, and its surrounding original gardens (Entrance & Plant Select garden, Children’s Garden, Garden of Eatin’, Sustainable Backyard, Outdoor Kitchen, and North Patio) will be closed. This closure will ensure safety and security of our site, staff, and project team. Construction is expected to last 8-9 months, pending weather and other unknowns. Our staff will continue to work in our offices and a temporary office site will be staged in the Classroom. Our Greenhouse will be used for growing plants for the Spring Plant Sale and our gardens. The Gardens’ closure is anticipated to be January 2, 2019 through grand opening in fall 2019.
