Renovation in the Botanical Garden
Finally we're up and running!
Thanks to fantastic donors, foundations, Lund University and the Statens Fastighetsverk, several functions will now be improved in Botan. It is mainly the Palm house that will get a new look and the environment will be improved for both employees and visitors.
The environment in the Botanical Garden will be upgraded both for employees and visitors when the new higher Palm house and a new entrance building will be in place. In the palm house there will be a hundred of new unique botanicals and this room will be experienced as a more of a lifelike forest. In connection with the palm house there will be room for exhibition and giftshop. Our main goal is to maintain the character and go back to the original while the spaces become more functional and better for the needs of the garden.
Our first project to get this started will be to rebuild our annex in the north garden to a lecture hall. Finally our pedagogue will get better conditions to spread knowledge in the garden. Construction of the lecture hall will start in the winter of 2022 and is planned to be ready in the spring of 2023.
As early as the summer of 2023 we will begin smaller tasks in the garden that may cause a little bit of disarray and shutdowns of specific parts of the garden. In 2024 the big rebuilding of the palm house, giftshop and exhibitions room will begin. This work is planned to take about 1,5 years and the inauguration is planned for the autumn of 2025.
Meanwhile this huge rebuilding is undergoing, the greenhouse and big areas around it will be shut down. Giftshop and service will be available but at another place in the garden.
