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.

We weren’t sure what to expect, but the Garfield Park Conservatory was a lovely escape from winter in April. The place is huge and well tended with a variety of blooms, palms, cacti, and even edible fruit. There’s lots for kids to do and an...More

Oh, the Spring Flowers were bursting with color and fragrance. Also enjoyed the Palm Room and the Desert Room. Suggest layering so you can take off clothing as you go through the hot humid or hot dry zones. Take pictures and take time to read...More

What a lovely place to visit in the middle of a cold Chicago winter. It's beautiful and peaceful. Good parking and a nice place for kids too.

If you are tired from all of the walking and need to sit down, this place offers respite from the elements. But, some of the plants are fake, which is disappointing.

This is one of the nicest pitstops in Chicago at any time of year. Plus---it's free! Step in, and breathe. Rooms of misted ferns, exotic greenery, succulents, cactuses, cool little meat-eating Venus flytraps (!!!)...just a lovely respite. I live in NY and our botanical gardens...More
