Gage Park Tropical Greenhouse in Spotlight
“Hamilton City Councillor Matthew Green predicts a $350,000 donation will help turn Gage Park into a “regional draw.”
The donation, from the Patrick J. McNally Charitable Foundation, will support construction of a 1,200-square-metre tropical greenhouse featuring fish ponds and exotic free-flying birds.
The replacement of Gage Park’s tropical greenhouse was approved as part of the 2010 Master Plan and construction is expected to begin next month.
Patrick J. McNally was a longtime Waterdown resident. Flamborough Councillor Judi Partridge says this contribution reflects his legacy and is “exactly what the man was all about.”
