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.

This is a good time of year to visit, They have concerts in the park. The flowers, and bushes are all blooming. Everybody is having reunion and a picnic. The weather is beautiful.

We visited here to look at this botanical garden for a potential wedding venue. It is absolutely gorgeous and the price for rental is very reasonable!

Finding the gems of Garfield Park is an ever expanding experience. The gardens, the amphitheater, and the Art Center are just a few of the things I have enjoyed for special events and simply Being There. What a delightful place for the neighborhood residents and all of us fortunate enough to know about the wonderful facilities in this expanse of... More

Better than we expected. Small but with an excellent collection of orchids far beyond that of larger facilities. They had a cute exhibit to entice kids into the fun with gnomes scattered among the plants and a mini-geo hunt to find them. The outside gardens didn't look like much in the late March cold but they will probably be gorgeous... More

We've been going to this conservatory for many years and now our grandkids are in love with it too! They were recently asked where they wanted to go and both said "the jungle"! Its peaceful and warm, great options especially during our cold Indiana winters. You also have the opportunity to buy a small plant. Minimal entry fee - $1... More
