The Minneapolis sculpture garden, know for its giant cherry and spoon sculpture, will be getting a facelift.

The Minneapolis Parks and Recreation Board and the Walker Arts Center are about to finalize a $10 million contract to renovate it.

The money will fix a damage problem and improve accessibility for those who are disabled.

Experts say they expect the board to approve the project in the next few weeks.
