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

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.
