Written statement issued Tuesday afternoon by Natalie Eggeman, Parks and Recreation Department Public Information Officer:
The Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory will be closed for the remainder of the day Tuesday, as a precaution, due to a natural gas leak. The gas leak occurred during contractor work on a nearby construction project. All Tuesday classes are cancelled.
The Conservatory will reopen Wednesday morning at 10 am, featuring the brand new Greek Garden Exhibit.
