For peaceful walk amidst beautiful gardens year round, perfect spot to decompress or picnic. The Conseratory is like entering a fairy tail.

Went to the Art Exhibit there today, as well as wandered tthrough the garden. Love the new historical tours at each of the various monuments and attractions. So easy to dial in and then listen. It is nice to visit Indianapolis' oldest park...can't wait until the Sunken Gardens are in bloom in April!

Visited the greenhouse with several family members. The Christmas decorations were still out and gave it a really festive look. The Christmas trains and villages captivated the children, who especially enjoyed putting their fingers into the koi pond and getting "kisses" from the fish. This is a rather small greenhouse compared to others I've visited, but delightful and beautiful nonetheless.... More

I did enjoy the greenhouse. But it was the gardens and the fountain that show off the best. This is one of those places where you can take someone to stroll and talk. A very pleasant, outdoor experience. The greenhouses must be fun on a rainy day; I can just imagine the sounds. But I enjoy the outside gardens on... More

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.
