Although I lived in the CHicago area for many years, I had never been here until a family member took me in April. It is lovely, classic, and certainly worth the trip!

If you like plants this place can't be beat. There's always something blooming either inside or out. Parking and admission are free. The CTA Green Line drops you off about 100 yards from the door.

One of the best of it's kind in the world. This place is astonishing. Don't miss it if you're in the area. I've been going here a long time. Parking nearby, safe.

Garfield Park Conservatory is a beautiful p[lace to visit any time of the year, but particularly so at Easter with all the extra floral decorations. Most of the plant materials are well labelled. Being so close to Lincoln Park Zoo is an added plus.
