“One of the nation's premier consevatories”
Garfield Park Conservatory is one of the nation's premier conservatories — six multi-faceted greenhouses and two grand exhibition halls. Or for that special occasion — weddings, reunions, business meetings — rent one or all of its rooms. This 3.5 acre wonder under glass can serve teachers of all grades as they assist the children in understanding plant growth and reproduction, and the importance of plants in every day lives. Beyond gardening workshops led by expert instructors, they also offer a number of classes that appeal to a variety of other interests, including cooking, arts and crafts, and much more. The Garfield Park Conservatory is open every day of the year.
This place is located in Chicago and works as the heart for the place. Well hidden under the metallic constructions, nature still exists and can impress everyone.
Every room of the Conservatory varies and the types and species of flora you can see will amaze you...as they did amaze us! I don't think someone can get more excited about a place like this. It contains plants from all over the world and its free of charge!
You can photograph yourselves next to these rare plant species without any prohibition! We were all ecstatic! Enjoy!
Really beautiful conservatory that not nearly enough people visit. It's like walking into a jungle in the middle of Chicago. It's open every single day of the year, they have great holiday setups, and not only does it act as a conservatory, it's also a place where you can pick up some classes on gardening as well. Highly recommended!
LOVE this place. It's like an indoor wonderland of jungles, deserts and waterfalls. There is a huge variety of plants with cool names. The fern room might have been my favorite, it's so lush and you literally feel like you're on-set for the Land Before Time. It would also be the perfect escape on one of Chicago's blustery winter days.
