Longwood Gardens Unveils $90 Million Improvement Plan

KENNETT SQUARE, Pennsylvania — Longwood Gardens has embarked on a series of major improvements to its 83-year-old Main Fountain Garden.

The $90-million project will include the restoration of the original limestone reliefs and fountains throughout the five-acre garden; replacement of the fountains’ electric and plumbing infrastructure with 21st-century systems; new water choreography, which will include jets that project water 175 feet in the air — 45 feet higher than the current capabilities; the reopening of the south wall, which has been closed to the public for the past 20 years, containing 20 wall-mounted fountains; new seating areas; and enhanced landscaping.

The Main Fountain Garden will reopen in spring 2017.
