Capital Campaign

Phase I of the new Mary N. Porter Welcome Center is anticipated to cost $2.2 million. To date, the Board of Trustees has raised initial Lead Gifts and pledges totaling over $875,000 toward this initial Phase I goal, including the lead naming gift- a $500,000 grant from the Mary N. Porter Legacy Fund. To read more about the new Welcome Center, EXECUTIVE SUMMARY (large file may download slowly).

MARY N. PORTER WELCOME CENTER​

Flamingo Gardens is planning for a new $4.4 million 10,000 square foot Welcome Center for visitors. The current building is 67 years old and its original wood frame construction is in severe disrepair. Its facilities are outdated and inadequate, and no longer meet the current needs of the 170,000 plus annual visitors to Flamingo Gardens. 

The new Welcome Center will provide a new entrance to the botanical gardens, customer service center, ticket booth, guest facilities, Gift Shop, Volunteer and Rental offices, cafe, and 2500 sq ft. of multi-purpose meeting, classroom, and exhibition space. Parking will be expanded with new front enrance signage and landscaping.
