Garfield Park Conservatory And Sunken Garden Reviews & Ratings
Oh Such A Beautiful Garden To Sit Or Even Stroll Around In. As My Husband And I Sat There, He Would Tell Me Stories About What It Was Like 20, 30 Years Ago. How Things Change. I Suggest Every One Take Someone Or Two And Go Stroll Or Sit In The Garden
Small conservatory. I was told there is no state botanical garden. Nice selection of tropical plants. Readable displays the older eyes can read and just outside, one could take a leisure walk around the grounds.
Beautifully manicured gardens and walkways, decent areas for children to play on playgrounds with plenty of benches for adults to watch from. Only $2 to enter the greenhouse, not bad. I wish there were more flowers in the main outdoor garden though!
This is one of the best places to go to enjoy peace of mind.. it's always been well maintained and beautiful. We've never been disappointed in choosing to relax there. We've even taken some school pictures there because the variety of scenery is nice.
Went to the farmers market. Vendors were awesome. Staff have my kids little lunch boxes which they loved. Then we walked around the sunken gardens and kids played on playground. It was super nice. Great place to explore on the weekend.
