Wednesday the N.C. Museum of Art in Raleigh held a groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of its park, which is expected to be completed by next summer. The expansion will add tree-lined parking lots, bike and walking paths, and a central elliptic lawn for museum and community programming. The long-term plan for the Museum Park includes a new campus entrance and streetscape, increased paved parking capacity, woodland and meadow restoration, additional trails and infrastructure, improved sustainability measures and additional outdoor works of art.
