The plan that has been given the green signal by the Preservation Committee will be funded by private donors and will receive support from the National Park Service.
Traditionally the Rose Garden is used by the presidents as a place to host foreign leaders. They have also delivered the annual Thanksgiving turkey pardons in this garden as well as some of the major presidential addresses.
