City Council update: Park Board, Walker planning changes to conservatory


The Minneapolis Sculpture Garden is wildly popular, most can agree. But it’s also quite expensive to operate.

In 2011, the garden and Cowles Conservatory combined to bring in $33,000 in revenue generated primarily through event fees.
