Garfield Park Conservatory is easily one of my favorite Chicago destinations. An awe-inspiring sanctuary during the harsh Chicago winters, and a fragrant day trip during the warmer months.

Well maintained conservatory. Had several species of plants that I had not seen before. Liked how they had different areas that concentrated on a type of foliage. One room was ferns (vascular plants) and one room of palms. Several other rooms of beautiful flowers. Peaceful.

I love the conservatories in Chicago. During our long usually dreary winters it is so uplifting and refreshing to take a leisurely stroll thru the tropical flora and dream of warmer climes!

You want to see the botanic garden? Visit Garfield Park Conservatory. People working there will be happy to explain everything - they can talk for hours about each and every plant there.

This is a wonderful place to take your kids when the yucky winter weather has you down. There are lovely green things and lots of wonderful humidity. It feels like a weekend trip to the Carribean. Parking is great and there is an el station right there. It is as lovely as the Bronx Botanic Garden in NYC.

The conservatory in itself is quite impressive; the free flower show I attended made it an even more attractive venue. This has a good variety of plants and flowers

Want a break from sirens and the hustle and bustle of the city, this is a good get away. Also a good place to chill.

The Conservatory was BEAUTIFUL...They were setting up for a reception, so we couldn't walk around the whole area, but we were able to take some pictures.
