The second-story indoor and outdoor elevated skywalk provides aerial views of the tropical rainforest biome and leads outdoors to a viewing platform overlooking one of the largest and most beautiful rose gardens on the East Coast. Explore the stunning biodiversity of four separate biomes housed in the new state-of-the-art Perry Conservatory, where a tropical rainforest meets the deserts of the West Coast. The elevated Skywalk leads guests from the two-story tropical oasis to the outdoors where visitors will also have views of the green roof of the Brock Entry Pavilion. The green roof features gardens which will supply the world-class bistro located on the ground floor.
The decking material is being provided by Trex, a company based in Virginia and the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking.
During the design phase of the Garden of Tomorrow, the environment has been first and foremost. Besides all of the surrounding eco-friendly plantings and gardens, as well as the indoor conservation efforts inside the Perry Conservatory, the NEW Skywalk is made of eco-friendly recycled material.
