One week after learning they would be acquiring the vacant Army Reserve building and property in Canandaigua, the state and Sonnenberg Gardens Wednesday unveiled some more information about their planned expansion.
Sonnenberg plans to re-purpose and renovate the former Army Reserve building and property into a new visitor welcome and admissions center, a climate-controlled space to curate and archive collections, as well as new paved parking for visitors and tour buses. The Park will be able to relocate its main entrance to E. Gibson Street to improve visitor access.

“What a team for the Finger Lakes! Working with Sonnenberg officials, New York State and local stakeholders we achieved the vision of expanding and modernizing Sonnenberg Gardens with the acquisition of the former Army Reserve property site. This is a win-win that will bring new life to a now-vacant federal building while solving Sonnenberg’s lack of a Visitor Admissions Center, space for educational programming, adequate parking, and so much more,” said U.S. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer.
