Designed by St. Augustine’s Marquis, Latimer + Halbeck, the project encompasses the renovation of the Lightner Museum’s existing terrace and garden space at the rear of the building.
The museum will activate the space with new and engaging programs: as an outdoor classroom for K-12 students; as a space for sculpture installations by local artists; a community farmer’s market; for outdoor film screenings and interactive light installations; and for health and wellness programs such as yoga and fitness boot camps.
Parks are critical to a community’s spirit, and our South Terrace and Community Garden Project will create a safe and inviting public space at the heart of downtown St. Augustine. It will provide an outdoor community gathering space for residents of the city, offering greater depths of connection between art, performance, education, and the community. The project will enhance the Lightner Museum’s position as an important cultural destination in Northeast Florida, in turn drawing more visitors to St. Augustine.
Planned renovations include:
