Creating a Vision for the Future
This aspiration spurred us to embark upon an extensive planning process in 2008 to define our mission, vision, and brand as well as short- and long-term strategies and expansion projects that would ultimately transform the Gardens into a place of outstanding beauty and significance.
This process lasted for four years and culminated in the development of the following guiding documents:
- Visionary Master Plan (comprised of a Research Report, Strategic Plan and Facilities Master Plan)
- Heritage Master Plan
- Interpretive Plan
- Brand Plan
Collectively, these documents align our priorities and provide us with a blueprint for decision making and long-range resource allocation. Perhaps more importantly, however, they tie together our many enterprises to create one cohesive Garden, united under a shared mission and vision.
