“While our building footprint expands significantly, so will planted green space. We will have a much greener footprint – we’ll be even greener than before” — NBG President & CEO Michael P. Desplaines
Brock Entry Pavilion
The NEW Brock Entry Pavilion will allow you to have a more enjoyable visitor experience -admission, membership, food amenities, tram service – all in one place. Transparent walls will bring the outside in.
The conservatory is the crown jewel of this project where you can immerse yourself in plants from around the world and learn about conservation efforts. This two-story 26,000 sq ft. structure will feature an outdoor skywalk, an experience unlike anything on the East Coast.
This area will allow us to expand educational programs and rowing experiences. With a covered space, school groups will have more opportunities to connect with the natural world even during inclement weather.
Imagine no longer waiting at the tollbooth. Instead your experience begins as you drive into the new parking garden – a greener space with the addition of more trees, flowers and rain gardens. Your Garden experience begins the second you step out of your vehicle.
