Longwood Gardens Hits Record Attendance as $90M Fountain Renovation Nears End

Officials of Chester County's Longwood Gardens are on a high.

The 1,077-acre Longwoods Garden in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, in 2015 hit its largest attendance figure with 1.3 million visitors, and its officials had lofty goals to exceed those figures in 2016.

Those lofty goals were met – even before the completion of the $90 million renovation of its Main Garden Fountain, which first went under construction in 2014.

The completion of the fountain and its relation to attendance should be noted because Longwood Gardens officials 13 years ago made attendance projections for 2016. They estimated 1.2 million visitors would come in 2016, and with the Main Fountain Garden opening, attendance might hit 1.3 million.
