On a walk through the Atlanta Botanical Garden yesterday, I could see serious progress on construction around the garden, including the new Edible Garden and Canopy Walk. Those, along with the Cascade Garden, are scheduled to open in May as part of the garden’s $55 million expansion projects
The Canopy Walk project was scheduled to open last year, but was on hold after part of collapsed in December 2008. One man was killed and 18 others were injured. Construction resumed in October.
Take the trip up to the garden slowly, and you can get an eyeful of the construction work yourself.
