Originally built in the ‘Greenhouse’ layout to accommodate a variety of flowers, the place was demolished in 1955. Soon the conservatory was reconstructed with the design layout made by Donald Grieb (winner of a local design competition). The design has three Domes which embrace the green pastures of the area.
The place showcases the Desert, Tropicana and Floral domes and is loved by locals and tourists for its close-to-nature design. When here, do carry your camera to capture the colorful flowers, serene ponds and waterfall.

Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory Reviews & Ratings
The info/ticket booth customer service was awesome! Very courteous and the guy took the time to answer any questions. The rest of the area was beautiful, well taken care of, all plants/trees labeled, and easy to navigate (each dome has a map). Would gladly come back here.
Impressive greenhouse exhibition. Well designed and cared. Fair price for a 2-3 hours stroll through pleasant landscapes and learn something new about botany. Love the succulents. The tropical exhibition is not very impressive, but I come from a tropical country so there’s for sure a bias. One star less for the policy of the membership. We were considering having a family membership for future return but the same day admission could not count toward membership fee, a very common practice nowadays.
Beautiful. We were blessed attend an event at night here. We got to see the domes lit up at night. The 3 very different domes were each exquisite in their own way. Definitely a place to see again!
First you see the three domes that house exhibits, these are impressive. Then you encounter the human sundial before entering the buildings. Already the educational experience has begun. Inside, each dome takes you to a different environment with a multitude of plants and a few unexpected animals. The tropics and desert domes each provide a feeling of the exotic including the temperature and humidity. Both are beautiful, educational, and offer an escape to another environment. To me, the Display dome can't compete with the other two, although showy and fun with plantings of various color coordinated flowers and shrubs it lacks an exotic atmosphere. But this may not be the case in mid-winter. It's well worth a visit to this plant zoo.
Long stretch of land! Great for walks with the kiddo and pets. There is a basketball court and tennis court in the back. I only wish the little lake area was guarded somehow so my 2 year old would not be tempted to swim and I wish there was a playground area. Had fun either way- smart parenting today 😊.
