An event center housed in a botanical garden. 

The proposed concept houses a tropical botanical garden, a performance stage, educational facilities, restaurant/bar/coffee shop, movement, art, creativity center, and a method to give the schools a place to bolster their art and science programs.

 

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. Building this will mean finding support. Financially, materially, and emotionally. That's how you can help. 

Intent

Something for Everyone

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. Room for education, project creation, shared growing spaces, kitchens, and collaboration with our universities and schools.
