The Hidden Lake Gardens in the heart of the city of Philadelphia will receive $400,000 in new funds to make improvements to their design and improve their landscaping, according to a news release.
The project will help improve the aesthetics of the gardens, improve the flow of water through the garden, and provide access to the lake.
The city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority are also contributing $500,000 each to the project.
A similar project, dubbed the Hidden Lake Landscape, was recently completed in Cincinnati, Ohio, which features an indoor aquatic experience and is now the first in the nation to be approved for the 2020 Olympics.
As a result, Philadelphia is hoping that the new funding will allow the gardens to remain open for visitors and for the public to experience the magic of the natural world.
