I have enjoyed my visits to the Foellinger-Friemann Botanical Conservatory at any time of year, but it is truly a life-saver during those bleak winter months when you are dying to escape the cold, even for just a couple blissful hours. It is the only place in town in the winter where you can soak up the sun's warm rays... More

My family enjoyed the Botanical Gardens, even my 6 year old sons. There is something for everyone here. Front desk staff was very helpful and admission price was very reasonable.

Wide variety of plants to see. Tropical zone was the most interesting area, with waterfalls and fish too. Quite warm the day we went, and the cafeteria was closed so we couldn't relax with a drink and snack. Highlight was the butterfly exhibit, but this was a temporary display and is now closed.

Just an absolutely gorgeous place! Would wholeheartedly urge a stop here when visiting Ft. Wayne (or even the surrounding areas in Northern Indiana). Beautiful plants, flowers, etc. that are divided into various "biomes" that you wouldn't get to see unless you traveled thousands of miles. HIGHLY recommended!!

A gem in the heart of Fort Wayne. These gardens are amazingly diverse and wonderfully maintained. The facility is divided into 'zones' with appropriate foliage growing in each one..and each is a fantastic experience. You don't have to be a plant enthusiast to enjoy a visit here...it is just a lovely way to spend the afternoon...with special spots and events... More

Yes, it is beautiful, however, TERRIBLE staff!! We are in the midst of planning our wedding reception here (already put down a non refundable deposit or I would be gone!) after we signed the contract and paid the deposit we were told of several very large hidden fees! I tried several times but no one would explain them or even... More

We took our young grandson the week before Christmas to see Santa and his Reindeer (2 real reindeer). The entire place was beautifully decorated. I've been to several events there and it is always first class - what a gem!!

I usually visit the Conservatory a couple of times a winter, we have very long winters in Indiana. The visits remind me of the warm summer. They have wonderful events at the Conservatory including Santa at Christmas . It is next door to the Embassy, so if you go during the festival of trees, you can do both in an... More

As the seasons change this facility changes to match the season. In Christmas they have a great display with lights, trees, Santa Claus and even live reindeer. It is a very nice place to take the kids and the price of admission is usually reasonable for what is available tht day. Parking is a problem but once you get there... More
