My 8 & 10 year old and I went there over spring break. While the outdoor area was somewhat bleak due to nothing having sprouted there, the Conservatory was a lot of fun. Their gnome exhibit was a lot of fun! Amazing how much fun kids can have when given a piece of paper and a list of things to... More

Now granted, we have had a horrid winter for our area, and spring is late in coming, but I would thoroughly enjoy this bulb show every year! Coming from the gray outside, you enter a plethora of spring color and fragrance that conjures hopeful visions of shorts and flip flops! The best $3 I've spent this winter!

We went here on a cold winter day. The space is nice but not very big. The staff was not very welcoming and did not talk to us at all. They had a good verity of plants.

We went here at Christmas to see something different. It is nice to see a tropical location in the middle of winter. A great value. A nice place for amateur photographers, lots of photo ops.

The Sunken Gardens and Conservatory are clean and they have teenage guards on duty to keep out the skateboarders etc. It is nice but very small and could disappoint if you drive more than 20 minutes for a visit. I would really only recommend this if you are on the southside of Indy for something else. They are very strict... More

Garfield park has beautiful gardens and flowing fountains. A gorgeous place to walk or just sit and overlook the beauty of this place. There is a conservatory filled with fish ponds and a water fall. They have a chocolate tree with lots of pods on it and a huge bird of paradise. It is a real tropical get away for... More

I love to hear the Indianapolis Symphony perform here in the summer. The sunken garden is beautiful.

We love Garfield Park, a fun place to go year 'round. The huge playground is a big hit in the warm weather, and the conservatory is wonderful in the colder weather. We have taken our Christmas card photo for the past 4 years. They have a wonderful winter wonderland set up after Thanksgiving and it's so nice to warm up... More

We took our 16 month old along with my parents to visit on the day after Thanksgiving. It was a great experience. It was all decorated for Christmas. Beautiful poinsettias throughout. They had a large train setup as well. My daughter loved the koi ponds. My husband enjoyed all the photographic opportunities throughout the greenhouse.
