Franklin Park Conservatory - Review

This historic attraction, built in 1895, is probably the most beautiful place in the city. It's amazing just how much floral variety they've managed to stuff in here.

  • There are 400 species of plants, most of which can be found in recreated biomes from around the planet - Himalayan, Rainforest, Tropical, and Pacific Islands. These areas are presented complete with rock and water bodies through which immaculately kept pathways course.
  • There are 43 different species in the Palm House.
  • The conifer and ornamental grass garden is elegantly landscaped.
  • The Grand Mallway bursts with flowers, and the even prettier Bride Gardens is a popular place for weddings.
  • In spring, the daylily garden shows off 850 varieties of the flower.
  • The Garden Campus combines classes in cooking and herb-rearing.
  • In summer, local glass artists put on a fascinating daily glass blowing demonstration.

And all of this doesn't even include the special and temporary exhibitions the gardens organise from time to time. The whole experience is nothing short of magical.

  • Absolutely love this place, Definitely worth the visit if you have never been here. If the weather outside is frightful then definitely stop in and enjoy the indoor portion, even more so if it is butterfly season. If the weather outside is great then just enjoy the outdoors. Especially in the spring and fall. Though the gardens are beautiful all year round. This place is also wonderful for an event space. Even if you are not having your event here, it can be wonderful for pictures before hand. Such as a wedding.

  • This place is increible-- particularly as members, we frequent it often and enjoy all that it has to offer. Membership is also well worth the price and pays for itself after two to three visits. I just wish that the rooms were more wheelchair accessible. I do not understand why there are no buttons to open the inner doors to each public area of the Conservatory. Also I do not understand why there can be no strollers in the art gallery. This makes no sense, as nearly every major museum and gallery I have visited are stroller accessible and this is especially off putting. Still overall, again, membership is well worth the price. In fact, we gave membership as gifts to family members last Christmas. I love the new (and beautiful) membership cards as well.

  • This is a nice place to visit if you want to see butterflies. The butterfly garden is the best area to wander through. The whole conservatory itself is less than overwhelming. It's a large area with not much character. Design of landscaping is minimal. There are specialized areas to travel through with not much variety inside. It is not worth the amount that is charged, but I am happy it exists, and I am happy I contributed to the preservation of it.

  • Great place to take kids on a rainy day. Good for walking around. Didn't know about it until my parents came to town. We enjoyed it very much looks like they are adding more. We were not able to enjoy outside as much due to snow but we had plenty of fun inside and will definitely go back for the butterflies.

  • It's a fun place to visit with lots of different things to do as I'm sure plenty of the reviews have stated, I'm only deducting one-star simply because I feel it's slightly overpriced. Especially when they have so many volunteers working there. They've done upgrade since the last time I've been there I'm sure we're paying for those but even with the upgrades they didn't really add a whole lot except for a couple of kids areas which is kind of cool but it raise the price more than double what it used to be
