Art, Culture, Science, and Education
The proposed concept houses a tropical botanical garden, outside gardens, "farm to table", a performance and event center, educational facilities, restaurant, wine and beer, coffee shop, movement studio, art throughout, creativity spaces, adventure experiences, and terrain.
Gardens of Xanadu is meant to be inclusive, diverse, and offer cultural opportunities to our region.
This concept is meant to be a foundation on which to start a conversation for all of us. Ideas and input are not only welcome, they are encouraged. GoX is meant to be run and owned by community.

Something for Everyone
The hope is to propose this to Expo Idaho and the old race track if the community supports the idea.
While the commissioners are in the midst of moving the park and have design plans for some of that space, we feel it could greatly benefit the region to have the project added into the master plans, but without disrupting the current process. Yes, there is financial analysis plan and yes it would generate money to go back into the community. Full stop here. This is important. This project is designed to generate large income to pay for itself, pay into the community, and to pour money into other community needs.
Year-round event space
A large stage in the heart of a tropical garden, under the moon and stars. For music, theatrical, and informational events inside and to compliment the outside performances at the Grandstand. Room for education, project creation, shared growing spaces, kitchens, and collaboration with our universities and schools. Add in some terrain and adventure engagements.
Interactive light sculptures, giant puppets and parades, drone light shows, projector mapping onto walls and ceilings, artist installations and immersive spaces. Exhibits and constantly changing spectacle. Keep it fresh, interesting, and people will enjoy returning.
Gardens, creative spaces, learning center
A place to create art, explore, learn, and spaces for dance, yoga, and other movement arts. Science spaces. Tech events and opportunities. Cultural events, exhibits, and opportunities to grow ideas. Open to community ideas and evolving to needs and wants.
