Funds Raised For Kansas Chinese Garden

Botanica in Wichita has raised more than $1.5 million to install a Chinese garden, which is now under construction.
Director Marty Miller says the garden, which was scheduled to open this fall, will be delayed until next spring.
Botanica officials say the next project will be aimed at raising about $500,000 to refurbish a merry-go-round from the closed Joyland amusement park. Miiller says about $100,000 has already been raised.
The center plans to restore the merry-go-round and also build a structure to make it a year-round attraction.
Botanica also plans to use a federal grant to attach a safe room to the merry-go-round structure.
