Volunteer Park Conservatory Improvements

 

Address: 1400 E Galer St, 98112


Current Status

January 2015
This project is nearly complete, and is open to the public as of December 2014. Remaining work includes; reworking historic planting benches in the Cactus House (the eastern most wing of the conservatory), building wide electrical service upgrades, and new heating and venting controls. Seattle Parks will also renovate the adjacent comfort station to meet American with Disabilities Act requirements and to improve the long term maintainability of this historic building. We expect all of this work to be complete by late April 2015. The Cactus House will be closed to the public until mid-February 2015.

Parks opened the Conservatory in December 2014 for the holiday season.

The project ensures long term preservation of these buildings. Visit Friends of the Conservatory for latest news and updates.
