Gage Park’s greenhouse grows up
By Matthew Van Dongen
“Birds and palm trees alike will soon be able to soar in Hamilton’s popular Gage Park greenhouse. A long-planned renovation of the subtropical greenhouse is finally set to begin this summer with a $4.2 million budget beefed up with a $350,000 donation from the Patrick J. McNally Charitable Foundation.
Drawings released by architecture firm mcCallumSather show the venerable old public portion of the tropical greenhouse will be replaced with a taller, more visitor-friendly 14,000-square-foot structure that also adds accessible bathrooms to the site.”
