Wintergarden Lockport

Posted by MJ

NF Winter garden superimposed over current parking ramp/park location on Main St.


The old Wintergarden is being dismantled with an initial goal of allowing reuse elsewhere.

Buffalo News Article

What about a Wintergarden Lockport? Keep this pseudo-historic structure in Niagara County. Tie it into the parking ramp project and create a year round park with views of the canal lower locks below. Fill in one of the missing teeth on Main St? Use green geo-thermal etc to get state grants? Perhaps a preservation grant?
Does the H.S have a horticulture program. NCCC? Maybe they could take part in this type of structure. Maybe even have a location in it for a small tree farm to re-tree our streets? Get residents vested in it.
Any other ideas?

Just thinking.....
