Artists Village Upgrades

August 16, 2013

Artist Village Walkway Replacement, Drainage Improvements and Handicap Accessibility Initiative

Beginning the week of August 19, Toledo Botanical Garden will upgrade its Artists Village hardscape. This project will improve the entire village, resulting in a much safer walkway system, proper ADA access to all village buildings and reduction of storm water run-off.

Every attempt will be made to minimize disruptions, but we wish to inform visitors of the work schedule, which is subject to weather and contractor availability.  If you have additional questions, please call TBG at 419.536.5566.
