A nice park and conservatory. The conservatory was smaller than I expected. Walking the paths around the park an conservatory was relaxing.

It was a beautiful day and we were excited to go to the Sunken Garden that is described as a "formal English garden". The website told us the fountains were not working, but did not say that the gardens were in transition and there were...More

Love the park. My dogs love the park. The sunken gardens are amazing as is the conservatory. Oldest park in Indianapolis, you can't beat it unless you hate to be outside.

We came here upon arrival in Indy. It was a good place to get out and stretch, take a little stroll. Suggested donation matches the experience. Pretty & well-kept, but we've been spoiled by conservatories and botanic gardens in Chicago and St. Louis.

This garden is the best kept secret. I bring out of town visitors here and they are always pleasantly surprised. Don't forget to go inside the green house for a tropical experience. The sunken gardens, outdoor, are a perfect place for a picnic. The Garfield...More
