Everything from tropical plants to beautiful Azaleas, Camellias, Orchids, ferns, palm trees, tulips, a perfect place to get a Spring Fix after a long cold winter. Today, March 15th, there were many families enjoying the beauty of the... More

Located next to the Lincoln Park Zoo, this is a must see. It is also free and while it does not take that long to wander through it is worth it. There are plants, trees and flowers from all over the world. There are markers that provide you the names of each of them. Some of them are so interesting... More

Knowledgeable staff are on hand to chat about some of the plants, definitely a pleasure to stroll through, won't hesitate in... More

Everyone goes to the Lincoln Park zoo and skips right by the conservatory, but we always include it on our list!! This is a beautiful conservatory with lovely well established plants and they are displayed wonderfully. It's so peaceful and beautiful.

When you are in deep freeze winter mode, there's nothing nicer than instant access to the tropics. Enter LP Conservatory. Although my heart is at Garfield Pk Conserv, with the roads snowy nasty, we went for the closer LPC. The orchids were great and spring show was being installed....nice bright blast of flowers and green. I told a plant tender... More

What a beautiful little gem hidden right by the Lincoln Park Zoo. Admission is free and so is parking, that is if you're lucky enough to find it. It's a grand greenhouse chock full of amazing plants and flowers, some that grow high up and some that creep and some that produce fruit, heard of a potato tree? Well, they... More

After suffering from some vandalism a few yrs. ago, they have recovered as much as possible. They have a few special holiday shows every yr. Their orchid room is great. There is a room with tropical trees & plants, then a room of various ferns. It's next to Lincoln park Zoo, both free. I would pay to go here.
