Garden House Renovation

The postponed renovation and expansion of our Garden House and Garden will break ground in June 2023. We anticipate that construction will span a two-year period and that the new Garden House will open as a purpose-built home for the Lower School in the fall of 2025. 

As construction proceeds we will share updates on this website and with the Packer community. General questions may be directed to

Neighbors of Packer may opt-in to periodic email updates about ongoing construction by contacting

When construction begins, a phone number for the Construction Manager will be posted to this website for urgent needs related to day-to-day construction.
