Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory Reviews & Ratings
A nice set of gardens, and a relaxing way to spend a spare hour or two when you have the time. The gardens are laid out with three indoor sections, each with a different theme, and an outdoor section. During our visit there were many plants in bloom. There are signs which tell visitors what the name is of the species of plant you are looking at. Being in the middle of the city means there is little free parking nearby.
This has always been a favorite place to visit and other than the obvious heat, which is totally expected of a conservatory, it was a beautiful visit. We did family pictures with our daughter and her new husband and loved it in there. Plenty of variety and unique spots for taking pictures. There were so many butterflies outside they were landing on us. The staff was great and the gardens beautiful. They really do need more handicap parking at the building though, there are 3 spots in a little drop off area and that's it.
So we visited this place for a cool little daytime date. The price was affordable only about five bucks to get in and the staff was friendly. They had a little market selling flower bulbs which was pretty cool. I love the honey bees display where you can watch live honey bees create honey and work. They had the cutest little gift shop and a wonderful area outside to sit and relax. The rainforest area was a bit too hot for me to stand but it was beautiful while it lasted. The desert area had a few plants that look like they were struggling a little bit. Outside of that, beautiful facility well taken care of and I would suggest it to anyone visiting the Fort Wayne area.
Check out the Butterfly Garden here. They have it every year for a few weeks during the summer. You get to be in an area with hundreds of butterflies from all over the world. It's a really nice experience. Kids really enjoy it.
Affordable (extremely), quiet, great for all ages. An amazing place for a date night or something to do with friends. They have a bunch of plants, but also fun activities for kids. An added bonus that they cover the parking fee for you in the parking garage.
