Beautiful venue for a wedding!

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

$2.00 -$3.00 located in Garfield Park! This is a must see. We take our company there as a place to visit and they always love it!

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

Visited while in Indy or the New Years. Thought this would be something to do and found it very interesting. The model trains and geraniums were nice, but the walk through the greenhouse with the self guided handout was worth the small entrance fee which is really more like a donation. An excellent and relaxing way to see some rare... More

I had the opportunity to take a fall stroll through Garland Park and the surrounding area. Had a wonderful meal in a quaint little restaurant not far from the conservatory and shopped at a "wonderful" book store which is loaded with hard-to-find original books. It is an area trying to make a come-back and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience (away... More

The conservatory is small for a city the size of Indianapolis, but offers a wide variety of plants and some great photo opportunities. I wend during a weekday and there was no staff in sight which was a little creepy. The conservatory was well maintained and the plants were all health. And attached children’s garden was locked so you couldn’t... More

We were in Indianapolis for a long weekend and we're looking for a nice park for the kids to run around. This place was awesome. The grounds were beautiful. There was a nice playground just a short walk away. We really enjoyed the creative gardens in the children's section as we'll. the conservatory was amazing! A wonderful mix of beautiful... More

This is a real forgotten treasure of Indianapolis. We rarely see anyone when we go and it is wonderful! The plants and trees and a welcome change after a difficult winter. And my 3 Year old nephew was in awe of the fish in the ponds under the waterfalls. The relaxing music that they play makes for a serene and... More
