Leu Gardens May Grow

Orlando's popular Harry P. Leu Gardens could have a facelift in its future. City officials said Monday they are putting together a new master plan for the publicly owned botanical garden's growth, and preliminary plans call for a café, more parking and a larger amphitheater area. One thing the gardens does not have yet is money. It generates about $1 million a year from admission and event fees, but that's not enough to cover its expenses. The city likely will seek grants to pay for long-term improvements, as it did when the park's last master plan was done in 1993. Director Robert Bowden said the proposed changes reflect the amenities that visitors have most often requested.
