My favorite area is the orchid house at the end of the conservatory. This is right next to the zoo and it is easy to visit both in the same day. If you have time cross the street and walk around the bird pond. There is a small park just behind the conservatory that it nice to visit.

Worth the trip, no fee, near the Zoo, well kept. Gardens in front were wonderful to stroll along on a beautifully sunny day

Great old greenhouse, very clean and in excellent condition. We grow orchids and the collection here, while not huge, had some lovely unique specimens. And it is free. Just go.

I love gardens and conservatories. While this is not the largest I have ever been to, it does have some spectacular orchids. It is peaceful and tranquil spot. You can easily work your way through in 30 minutes. However, you can also spend a ton of time taking photos or enjoying the view from one of the benches scattered about.... More

You can look forward to a tropical-feeling walk through cool plants from all over the world, mess with the sensitive plants, check out a great collection of ferns and try to find the little dinosaurs they comically set in the moss and ferns.

This beautiful gem is located in the heart of Lincoln Park. It is wonderfully maintained, full of florious flowers and unique plants, andhas a touch of tongue in cheek humour (look for the dinosaurs!).

Yes it is free and it's just outside the west gate of Lincoln Park Zoo. It isn't huge and it's less exciting than some conservatories I have been to, but it is a lovely tranquil space to stroll around and enjoy the flowers and plants. If you are into gardening then this is right up your street. Well worth a... More

It free, it has been around for years. It's not big, but it is worth a look. They have it broken down it climate zones. If you are into gardening you will enjoy.

We spent HOURS in the conservatory, and we could've spent more! It was absolutely gorgeous and the tiny little dinosaurs in one of the rooms was very cute!
