Hidden Lake Gardens is excited to announce that their tropical dome is being renovated this summer. The Date Palm tree and the Fan Palm tree have out grown the space and are threatening to compromise the dome structure and they must be removed. Though they are sad to say goodbye to these old friends, their removal provides a unique opportunity for other improvements to the facility.
Hidden Lake has created a plan for retaining some of the key plants while adding new plantings with more color and flowers along with a water feature, upgraded electrical, lights, plumbing, and painting. Additionally they will be making repairs to the outside sandstone walls and addressing water drainage. The end result will be a new, exciting and fresh tropical environment for visitors to the gardens.
The Tropical Dome is now closed and the refreshed Tropical environment will reopen later this summer. The Arid Dome, Temperate House and the Bonsai Collection at the Conservatory, as well as all gardens at Hidden Lake, will continue to be open to the public during this process.
