South Coast Botanic Garden to be Renovated

The South Coast Botanic Garden on the Palos Verdes Peninsula will receive several refurbishments as part of a General Improvements Project that was approved by the Board of Supervisors, Supervisor Don Knabe announced today.

The renovation project will include the installation of a new Japanese Garden trellis; replacement of a chain link fence with tubular black steel fencing; replacement of the termite-infested sections of the trellis at the main entry to the Francis Young Hall; installation of new lighting; installation of Americans with Disability Act (ADA) compliant sidewalk; installation of new turf in three meadow areas; and various other site improvements.

The total cost of the refurbishments at the South Coast Botanic Garden will be approximately $622,429, and funds for the project will come from the Safe Neighborhood Parks Proposition A of 1996.

The project is estimated to be completed within 210 working days, and the required construction should result in minimal disruption of services. Signs that inform the public of any upcoming work will be posted at each site 30 days prior to the start of construction.
