The expansion will provide facilities and open space for enhanced cultural, academic, scientific and social endeavors for the community. 

Chandor Gardens is named for Douglas Chandor, one of the great portrait artists of the 20th century. Five of his paintings are on display in the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery. His portrait of Eleanor Roosevelt is displayed in the White House, and his coronation portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, graces the British Embassy in Washington, DC.

His passion for gardening and his artistry intertwined to be beautifully expressed in the gardens he created and named, White Shadows. After the untimely death of Douglas in 1953, his wife, Ina, paid tribute to him by changing the name to Chandor Gardens.

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
