The highly-anticipated public rooftop garden is opening at the Vancouver Public Library later this month.

It’s been under construction at the Central Library location in downtown Vancouver for over a year but it’s well worth the wait.

The rooftop garden and expansion is part of a $15.5 million project. Now, there’s about 40,000-square-foot of extra space, including the 8,000-square-foot garden where visitors can read while getting some fresh air.

Other changes include the addition of an 80-seat auditorium, a spacious reading room and many art exhibition spaces.
