St. CLOUD -- The peacock enclosure at Munsinger Clemens Gardens will be receiving upgrades.

Central Minnesota Community Foundation is beginning fundraising to improve the existing facilities.

The improvements include replacing the open-air peacock pen with the living quarters with running water and temperature control to provide better conditions for the birds.

They are also adding a children's play area and updating the bathrooms and storage. Expanded vistas will give visitors a better view of the river.

The foundation's Friends of the Gardens Advisory Council is hoping to start construction in 2023.
