VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) -- The Virginia Aquarium & Marine Science Center is proposing an expansion that includes a zip line and a coastal conservation garden.
Virginia Beach's City Council is scheduled to vote on the project Tuesday.
Brian Solis with Virginia Beach Parks and Recreation tells The Virginian- Pilot (http://bit.ly/1ghO5FM ) that the aquarium's foundation would partner with the department for the project.
Solis says the garden would free and open to the public. A $250,000 grant from the Williams Family Foundation would be used to maintain it.
According to city documents, the expansion also could include a butterfly garden, nature center and amphitheater.
