Don’t expect to get your groove back until 2016.
It’s a classic good news, bad news scenario.
The good news, Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens is improving the flora scene around Lake Syndor. New beds will be built on the east side of the lake and will include a variety of spring-flowering trees, including as you may have guessed by the name several varieties of cherries. Visitors will be able to enjoy these new planting on a illuminated walkway circling the lake. Other improvement that won’t be so obvious are better irrigation and draining.
The bad news, the work will force the popular Groovin’ in the Garden to take a hiatus for both 2014 and 2015. The garden won’t be completely silent. There will be music for Mother’s Day and Flowers After 5 concerts and the occasional impromptu jam sessions in our Children’s Garden. Haymaker Productions which has been putting on the Groovin’ in the Garden series since 2005 will continue providing the Richmond area with live music shows at other venues throughout the area.
