Botanical Garden Would Bring Tourists To Louisville

The Louisville Botanica gardening group is betting that if they build a botanical garden, tourists will come.

"If Louisville would build a $20 million botanical garden on a closed landfill across from Waterfront Park, it could attract 100,000 people a year and inject $2.7 million into the economy, according to consultants hired to evaluate the idea."
