Renovated in 1992, the Garden Study Center is an extraordinary example of WPA architecture. Originally known as the old Potting Shed, this beautifully restored structure is one of the original brick buildings in City Park designed by the late architect, Richard Koch. Near the lily pond and the Conservatory, it has solid brick walls, a slate roof and copper gutters reminiscent of an old English cottage.
This fine facility comprises 1,620 square feet and is ideal for lectures, meetings and exhibits, as well equipped with audio-visual facilities. The building also includes a smaller meeting room, warming kitchen and restroom. The Garden Study Center accommodates 100 guests for auditorium-style seating, 60 guests for seated dinners or luncheons, and 50 to 75 guests for cocktail parties.
