Beginning in the late 1990s, the Garden engaged in a community-oriented master planning process. The master plan developed around the universal theme of water and created a framework for physical development that prioritized environmental stewardship and cultural expression. The first phase of the adopted master plan by Conservation Design Forum of Chicago and Atelier Dreiseitl of Germany includes the Platinum LEED® rated Visitor & Administration Center, Sustainable Landscapes, Horticulture & Maintenance Facilites, and construction of the new Parking Garden.
