Entering into a new chapter at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park

IMG_6483

Since opening in 1995, Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park has evolved into a major cultural attraction focusing on horticulture, sculpture, the natural environment and the arts. Our Welcoming the World: Honoring a Legacy of Love campaign means that a number of exciting changes are coming, and we’re thrilled that you’re along for the ride.

We have heard from our members and guests that being able to see our progress up close as it happens is desirable. We are making every effort to allow you to safely witness the expansion while maintaining the high quality of horticulture and sculpture presentations that we are known for.

Come watch us grow in person and follow our progress online at www.meijergardens.org/growing

Beginning Monday, July 9, guests will notice the start of a new era here at Meijer Gardens. As you arrive for a visit, please follow all posted signs to help find your way and feel free to ask our helpful staff members and volunteers if you have any questions.

Some things that you can expect to see over the next several months:

  • Parking Lot A will be closed and our handicap accessible parking spots will be moved closer to the new entrance.
  • The Peter C. and Pat Cook Entry Arbor and PNC Bank Garden Portico (the glass covered walkway under which you used to enter the building) will be removed and recycled. All guests will enter through the temporary entrance that has been rising over the last few months.
  • A new temporary entrance is ready for visitors. Guests will now enter through this building and approach the Welcome Desk from the west. This will be the main entrance until our new Welcome Center opens.
