Garfield Park Conservatory

Posted on 04.10.2013

As the weather warms up and finals draw near, getting outside to relax is a great idea. If you are interested in finding a peaceful place to help calm your mood and mind, the Garfield Park Conservatory and Sunken Gardens is the place to go. This place offers workshops, gardening demonstrations, youth education and guest lectures on horticulture and landscaping. Located two miles from campus, the conservatory has 10,000 square feet full of plants. Their aromas include the smell of a cacao tree, ice cream bean tree and a shaving brush tree. Admission to the conservatory is just a dollar. Hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The Garfield Park Conservatory hosts special events and shows on occasion. One upcoming event is the orchid show April 13-14 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This event will exhibit the conservatory’s orchids.  Special show admission is $3 per person or $8 per family.  I completely recommend checking out the conservatory.
