The Garfield Park Conservatory is free and open 365 days a year, but there is a requested donation at the door.
Once inside, you’ll be able to walk through various rooms that showcase specific plant types. The Desert House is filled with prickly succulents and cacti, the Fern Room is jam-packed with lush ferns and the Aroid House is home to popular houseplants. Come summer, the outdoor gardens, which amount to a whopping 12 acres of land, offer a total sensory experience that will transport you somewhere else—if only for the day.
