A beautiful spot to check out, especially in winter when it offers are warm, leafy respite from the weather. Great backdrop for weddings too.

This is Chicago's more "out of the way" conservatory, but it's worth the trip. After a nasty hailstorm earlier this year damaged their roof, the conservatory has dug itself out and is better than ever. A wonderful place to chase the winter blues away.

A pleasure to support your work – A beautiful setting and a treasure in Chicago. I love what they do and will continue to support them in their fine work.

Beware!!!!! – Be very careful when going, do not park in the parkinglot. Me and my fiancee were robbed at gunpoint the other night. They all our belongings and walked away like it was nothing to them. I would not reccomend anyone going there late or at all. Please take this as a warning.

A little caution – this particular conservatory is hard to find and not in a great location. It is gorgeous, however, and with a little caution is worth the trip. There is another conservatory, in Lincoln Park, which is just as nice, also free, easier to find and has other fun things nearby (zoo, park, nature museum). I would recommend it over Garfield Park.

A year-round refuge for those in need of a dose of greenery or a blast of desert air. – Overview
Covering four-and-a-half acres at the north end of Garfield Park, the conservatory houses one of the world's largest indoor gardens. In 1906, architect Jens Jensen broke from 19th-century tradition by designing organic settings for the collections rather than displaying them in pots. Extensive renovations, expanded public programming and high-profile exhibitions have recently brought this West Side oasis renewed public attention.

The Experience

The palm house dominates the exterior, and its soaring tropical species are the first to greet visitors. Eight interconnected greenhouses are divided by climate, from the abundant life of the moist fern room to the odd alien forms springing from the desert house gravel. In the children's garden, a variety of informative displays and activities engage youngsters before they jump into one of two play areas. Adjoining classrooms host horticultural workshops and clinics throughout the year.

Beautiful green space – I went out to see the Chihuly exhibit and truly enjoyed myself. The conservatory itself is beautiful and lush--what a great place to visit in the dead of winter for a little dose of greenery.
