An amazing rain forest (with great info for school aged children.) Definitely bring a camera...... my pictures were amazing . The outside was beautiful despite there not being outside plants. Hope I can make... More

i take my grandaughter here and we walk the garden/fountain. There is a flower / tree conservatory you can walk thru for a fee of one dollar. (well worth it). There is an outdoor theatre where they put on shows from time to time. The library is there as well.

I travel all around Indianapolis for my job and have the freedom to work where ever a table is present. On nice days I love to come to Garfield Park. I've explored the park and there is literally something for anyone looking to kill some time or relax away a few minutes or a few hours. There is a gorgeous... More

Very nice park with walking trails. Lots of people picnicking, enjoying time with family and friends. Sunken gardens were very pretty and well laid out. Don't forget to visit the conservatory for $2. It is worth it. There are some amazing plants in there.

There is a lot to see in Garfield Park. The Sunken Gardens are a "must do", and the MacAllister Amphitheater has events every weekend in the summer from Shakespeare to vintage movie screenings. The Park is connected to Ellenberger Park via the Pleasant Run Trail, and has paved pathways throughout the whole park. For a few different reasons, I think... More

The Sunken Garden is beautiful! Take a walk through and appreciate the beauty of nature, right in the city. Garfield Park is a nice park, but this adds so much to its allure. If you have a couple of bucks check out the Conservatory too.

The conservatory changes with the seasons with worthwhile displays. The sunken gardens have recently been renovated and makes a great place for pictures.
