Refreshing and enhancing Mellon Park's community center for cultivating botanical knowledge, inspiring creative minds and spreading the joy of gardening

Located inside a historic former carriage house in Mellon Park, the Garden Center was established in 1948 as a site for people and groups to meet and to cultivate botanical knowledge, inspire creative minds and spread the joy of gardening. In 2016, Phipps and its partners began exploring a renovation to add value to the Center's five stakeholder groups: the community, building users, staff, donors and the planet.

There is no final design for the Garden Center project at this time. Plans are forthcoming in response to community input; contact us at to send your thoughts, and stay tuned to this page for more updates as progress continues.
