Garfield Park Conservatory, Chicago Reviews

  • Enjoyed walking through and admiring the wonderful collection of plants. Many plants labeled and really enjoyed the extensive fern collection. It was chilly outside but warm inside. Conservatory is a short walk from L and parking lot just outside of it. Great place for families as a play area has been integrated into one garden room.

  • This was my first time here and wow was I impressed! I cant believe this gem is within the city with so much to offer and such an amazing atmosphere that they provide. It truly feels as if you stepped into a garden oasis or are in a jungle surrounded by beautiful plants and waterfalls as well! A must see!!

  • It's a beautiful place! It's very spacious with a good variety of plants. I like the lay out of the place, including the outside sections they have. I like that they have a kids section, although we didn't have kids with us. I wish there were more information on individual plants and species as you walk along. Otherwise, great place to spend a couple of hours if you're into nature and botany.

  • You just can't believe this place exists on Chicago's west side. Absolutely spectacular glass houses of plants from all over the world. Towering palms, tiny zebra-striped thickets, orchids, cacti, grapefruit trees, hanging vines, koi and turtles in decorative pools, a massive outdoor lawn in back with a huge pond and bridge. There's a kids room with a slide, play spaces and a giant oval to dig in. One hall changes the plants and decorations for each season. But my favorite place is the Fern Room, which is humid, dense with ferns and moss, has waterfalls running through it, and looks like dinosaurs should be roaming around. Totally prehistoric, extremely relaxing. If I had that room at the back of my house, I'd never be stressed. Free admission, lots of parking, and the Green Line goes straight to the front door. A great place to bring your family, especially when Arctic Chicago takes over. You will mingle with people of all ages and backgrounds from around the city. Friendly co-existence is the way here. I wish folks could be as peaceful and respectful in the rest of the city as they are at the Conservatory. A total gem in a neighborhood that really deserves one.

  • Such an amazing and beautiful oasis of life in the concrete jungle that is Chicago. So many types of plants and greenery to enjoy. As well as many photo opportunitys. Very relaxed atmosphere which plenty of rooms to learn and explore. Free Entry (donations accepted) or Membership available. Free parking in lot or side of main road. Merchandise/snack shop inside. Public restrooms inside.
